LGBT Older Adults and Health Disparities

Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders (SAGE) & The Movement Advancement Project and SAGE & Center for American Progress

September 1, 2010

LGBT older adults experience health disparities across four general areas: access to health care, HIV/AIDS, mental health, and chronic physical conditions. Additionally, extra taxation on retiree health insurance benefits means that many LGBT elders simply cannot afford to receive retiree health insurance. This is especially problematic given that LGBT older adults face a wide range of physical health disparities that are generally unaddressed by governments or health care providers.
