Two organizations are collaborating to provide Maryland-specific resources for transgender youth and their families grappling with the legal system. Prompted by a request from PFLAG, legal services organization FreeState Legal created trans*youth@md , a website meant to address legal questions frequently asked by transgender minors and their parents. "We want to help parents figure out what they have to do, what they can do to protect their children," said Catherine Hyde, the transgender coordinator for PFLAG's Howard County chapter and a member of PFLAG's national board of directors.

This time last year, Grant Krebs' spirits were low. Sidelined with a back injury throughout the 2005 season, the St. Mary's standout lacrosse midfielder was forced to watch the once-mighty Saints program struggle to a 3-13 record. "Honestly, I was kind of down the entire season," said Krebs, a senior. "It was really difficult not being able to play." Krebs suffered from a stress fracture in his back near the beginning of the season.

In the latest skirmish in a battle that is sure to continue into the legislative session, the Maryland Health Care Commission rejected emergency regulations yesterday that would have lowered deductibles for "open enrollment" health policies. The commission's staff and Insurance Commissioner Steven B. Larsen had recommended the emergency action to help about 8,000 FreeState HMO members who will no longer be able to get individual coverage from FreeState after Dec. 31. They currently have no deductible, but would be forced into open enrollment policies with high out-of-pocket payments.

CareFirst BlueCross Blue- Shield is trying to improve its profitability "at the expense of thousands of less healthy, former FreeState members" who will have to seek new coverage, the state's insurance commissioner has warned in a letter to legislative leaders. As CareFirst offers a new HMO and drops two old ones, Commissioner Steven B. Larsen warned in the letter Thursday that an estimated 7,000 FreeState members won't be able to pass the new HMO's medical exams. Those that can't pass will be offered "open enrollment" policies, but their high deductibles could be viewed as diminished coverage, he said.
