Plume, the first health tech company built for the transgender community, announced that it has been named Preferred GAHT Provider for Solace, a free app for iOS and Android that guides people through the gender transition process. The partnership provides those seeking Gender Affirming Hormone Therapy (GAHT) a guided virtual experience from the moment they inquire about GAHT to the moment they receive it.
Solace provides medical, legal and lifestyle guidance for trans people, allowing users to create custom programs for their transition via a mobile application. Plume provides safe, expert, and affirming GAHT through the convenience of a smartphone guided by a team that is mostly trans themselves.
When Solace users seek gender-affirming hormone therapy services on the app, they will be informed that Plume can help accomplish this goal. Plume supports individuals on their GAHT journey with access to virtual consultations, doctor appointments, checkups, prescriptions for hormone treatments, lab tests and surgery letters of support.
By providing virtual GAHT services, Plume allows its members to bypass in-person clinic visits, which can be rife with discriminatory practices, long waiting periods and insurance hurdles. For $99 a month, Plume members receive 24/7 access to gender affirming care from the convenience of their smartphone, never having to step inside a doctor’s office.
“Our mission at Plume is to provide quality gender-affirming care in all communities where trans people seek it and this partnership will help us broaden our footprint in new and existing markets,” said Soltan Bryce. “Solace is a trusted and valued resource for trans folks everywhere, and we’re honored to partner with them to expand access to life-saving gender-affirming hormone therapy.”
Plume is currently available in CA, NY, FL, CO, TX, NC, VA, OR, MA, MN, ME and PA, and is expanding rapidly.
