The Department of Health and Human Services recently confirmed (PDF link, embedded below) that the Affordable Care Act’s

“sex discrimination prohibition extends to claims of discrimination based on gender identity or failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity… [It] also prohibits sexual harassment and discrimination regardless of the actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity of the individuals involved.”

This is awesome news.

Of course, not everyone will feel this way.  So if you feel a health care provider, or state or local government agency, has discriminated against you (or someone else) based on gender identity, I encourage you to file a complaint with the HHS Office of Civil Rights, so your complaint can be investigated and appropriately handled.
