I don’t want to add stress to the already stressful lives of my transgender sisters and brothers, but for those if you who are considering GCS (Gender Confirmation Surgery), breast reduction (FTM) or any of a host of procedures that are covered by medical insurance….things are entering onto shaky ground.
There is a focused effort in the Trump Administration to take away your lawful protections.
Although insurance coverage isn’t mentioned in the plan to take away your protections, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out where this Republican plan is heading.
Five years ago, it was unheard of for an insurance company to pay any part of your medical bills for these procedures. When I had my surgery, talking to Blue Cross was like speaking to an autistic child about my coverage. Nobody knew anything. Its still that new.
There are two things you can do to help yourself at this point.
Get the surgery as quickly as possible if you can. This is a time sensitive issue.
Get involved politically. Open your mouth, write your Congress reps, vote, rally and fight for the cause.
Most Americans don’t give a damn about YOUR RIGHTS so if you’re waiting for someone else to do it…ITS NOT GONNA HAPPEN.
