LGBTQ Safe Zone Program

LGBTQ Safe Zones

When you see a BCBSRI Safe Zone logo at a provider’s office, this identifies a healthcare practice that provides safe, affirming, and inclusive care to the LGBTQ community. Certification requirements include: staff training specific to the care of trans* and LGB people; protection for patients and staff from discrimination based on gender identity or expression; gender neutral bathrooms; inclusive forms and procedures; and a public commitment to connecting with and serving the LGBTQ community.

We have designated the following practices as BCBSRI LGBTQ Safe Zones:
