Trump Plan Would Cut Back Health Care Protections for Transgender People – The New York Times

Trump Plan Would Cut Back Health Care Protections for Transgender People – The New York Times:

The Trump administration says it plans to roll back a rule issued by President Barack Obama that prevents doctors, hospitals and health insurance companies from discriminating against transgender people.

Advocates said the change could jeopardize the significant gains that transgender people have seen in access to medical care, including gender reassignment procedures — treatments for which many insurers denied coverage in the past.

The rule was adopted in 2016 to carry out a major civil rights law embedded in the Affordable Care Act. The law prohibits discrimination based on race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability in “any health program or activity” that receives federal financial assistance.

  1. He is not going to be happy until he undoes everything that helps less fortunate people, people of color, and the LGBT community….and the environment. Such a disgraceful, disgusting human being. The next election can’t come soon enough.

  2. So..Should women get boob jobs covered by insurance too, or are free boob jobs only for men who want to be women ?

    Boob jobs would be therapeutic to many women so its only fair for cosmetic surgery to be covered for EVERYONE or no one; and lets face it, can we really afford to pay taxes for cosmetic surgeries, and why would we want to ?

    Pay for your own cosmetic surgery like everyone else.
