Since the American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend circumcision and insurance companies view circumcision as a cosmetic procedure should parents have to pay for circumcision.
Circumcision costs about $250. Should insurance companies, Medicaid, and the new national childrens health care prograns pay up? There are people that don't want their money paying for abortions. What about those of us who don't want our money paying for circumcision.
I live in Arizona and according to the information I could fird Medicaid does not pay for circumcision.

Yes I think parents should pay for it. I agree that it is not a medical necessity.

I agree, no medical reason for it so you should pay out of pocket!
