Illinois Medicaid to cover gender reassignment surgery
from Chicago Tribune
Illinois' Medicaid program intends to start covering gender reassignment surgery as early as this summer, the state announced Friday afternoon. Medicaid members age 21 and older who are diagnosed with gender dysphoria would be eligible for genital and breast-related surgery, under proposed rules from the Department of Healthcare and Family Services. Medicaid is a state and federally funded health insurance program that serves many poor and disabled Illinois residents.
