Medical insurance for trans surgery

The Wall Street Journal is reporting that more employers are choosing health insurance plans that cover sex reassignment surgeries: “American Express, Kraft Foods, AT&T, Yahoo!, Eastman Kodak, Sears, Morgan Stanley, Price Waterhouse, General Motors and State Farm are among 85 large businesses and law firms that cover the cost of at least one surgery, according to a 2010 survey by the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest gay rights group.”

To find out more about trans-friendly employers check out the HRC Healthcare Equality Index. And don’t forget that SRS is tax-deductible.

  1. Enjoyed reading through this, very good stuff, thanks . “Love begets love, love knows no rules, this is the same for all.” by Virgil.


  2. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d without a doubt donate to this excellent blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to fresh updates and will talk about this blog with my Facebook group. Talk soon!


    1. Thank you very much for you generosity. I am not currently accepting donations because 1) I’m a resident and not a practicing provider — this will change in 2013 — and 2) This blog is therapeutic for me to vent my feelings in a constructive way. I figure I get just as much out of it as my readers. I don’t want to burden readers with feeling obligated to donate. I’m happy to blog for free!


    1. Thank you! I enjoy exploring the edges of social constructions and revealing that there are no clean boundaries, only gradients. If you have suggestions for further topics, I’m open to suggestions. Thanks for writing!
