New York: insurance companies to cover ‘sex change’ procedures

The Democratic governor of New York has ordered the state’s private health insurance providers to offer coverage for “sex change” procedures, including hormone treatments and elective surgery, reports LifeSiteNews.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, delivered the announcement Thursday through a letter issued by the state Department of Financial Services, which informed insurers that they “may not deny medically necessary treatment otherwise covered by a health insurance policy solely on the basis that treatment is for gender dysphoria.”

Gender dysphoria is the technical term for what most people refer to as being “transgender” or “transsexual” – i.e., feeling that one was born into the body of the wrong sex. People suffering from the condition often decide to transform their bodies by having their genitals surgically altered to resemble that of the opposite sex. Women undergo mastectomies to remove their breasts, while men get breast and buttock implants to make their shape appear more feminine. Most people of both sexes who choose to undergo surgery also opt to take a cocktail of hormones designed to force the body to behave more like the opposite sex; for example, a man taking estrogen might develop a higher-pitched voice, or a woman taking testosterone might develop facial hair. In order to remain effective, the hormones must be taken for life.
