DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- A North Carolina federal judge ruled Friday the state health plan must cover hormone therapy and surgery for transgender people. The gender-affirming care can be costly.

"Transgender people have to choose between participating in the American dream of one day owning your own house or choosing to be your authentic self," said North Carolina resident Paully Adams. "Testosterone can cost between $150 and $1,500 per month."
