    HHS to Reevaluate Ban on Gender-Confirming Surgeries



    Medicare and Medicaid could cover gender-confirming surgery for transgender people for the first time, if the final policy review turns out similarly to this initial ruling.

    This would be HUGE!!! I know of someone that is transgender and this person's self esteem is so low that she does not leave her home. She is not able to work. She feels like a freak and is so afraid of children seeing her. She feels helpless because she feels that she will never have the money to have the surgery she needs to be the person she feels she is. This could be life changing for her. I have not met her personally. I have a friend that told me about her.

    I believe the government should pay for everything.
