To go with the GLBT questions sparked by the legislation passed in NY...do you think insurance should cover services for transgender individuals? Services generally include therapy, hormones, top surgery for FTMs, sometimes bottom surgery. What is your reasoning for your answer?
I am editing to add something. Many of you are bringing up medical need. Gender identity disorder is a medical condition. It is in the diagnostic manual. And treatment for said problem sometimes includes surgeries. So why should treatment be denied for a medical condition?Answer Question

Hormones are fine, anything else should be on your dime. It's just plastic surgery and that's not something that should be covered by insurance (unless you buy a specific policy) and definitely NOT by the state.
