This chapter discusses a variety of issues that impact access to optimal health care for gay and bisexual men in the United States. Special consideration is given to health insurance coverage and health insurance discrimination among gay and bisexual men. A discussion of domestic partner benefits highlights the role of legally-sanctioned partnerships and access to health insurance. The chapter concludes with specific recommendations for improving the health care environment and communication practices of providers who care for gay and bisexual men, including special populations of gay youth and elderly gay men.
