(KUSA) A Colorado transgender woman's lawsuit has led to a nationwide policy change at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Jennifer Blair had surgery to change her gender more than a decade ago.

Blair was denied a free breast cancer screening this spring because CDC policy only covered patients who were born female.

Two months after NBC affiliate KUSA in Denver aired the story, the CDC changed its policy.
