    Wisconsin now covering sex-reassignment surgeries for trans-identified employees

    Beginning Jan. 1, the state’s Group Insurance Board began covering hormone treatments and sex change operations for state employees suffering from gender dysphoria, according to Wisconsin Public Radio.

    The move comes after the board had previously excluded coverage of gender transition surgeries. Because such procedures were not covered by the state, the state was sued by transgender employees who were refused coverage. They were represented by the left-leaning nonprofit legal group the American Civil Liberties Union.

    “Transgendered men do not become women, nor do transgendered women become men,” McHugh wrote. “All (including Bruce Jenner) become feminized men or masculinized women, counterfeits or impersonators of the sex with which they ‘identify.’ In that lies their problematic future.”

    CP contacted the Wisconsin Department of Employee Trust Funds to ask if the health coverage also includes elective plastic surgeries for employees who do not suffer from gender dysphoria, breast reductions or breast reconstruction surgery (including implants) following a mastectomy or lumpectomy. This piece will be updated when a response is received.

    The department said paying for the surgeries will help stave off negative health effects, such as depression and suicide. The HFS said 17 states and Washington, D.C. offer coverage for the surgeries without a significant cost increase.

    The ACLU of Illinois hailed the decision to cover sex reassignment surgeries.

    I wish there was a list of the 17 states that covered these procedures.

    Just wait... If "Medicare for All" ever arrives, imagine the "free-for-all" people will demand.
