Thumbs down Transgender Residents Sue Medicaid To Force Taxpayer Reassignment Surgery

In spite of what these confused individuals claim, this IS elective surgery, so it is not discrimination to refuse them taxpayer-funded surgery, since no one else can obtain Medicaid-funded elective surgery. If they get a Democrat judge, though, they will win, a loss for taxpayers.

Quote:
What should and shouldn’t be covered under government-sponsored healthcare has long been a subject of debate in many parts of the United States. Many states simply set their own limits (or don’t set any at all), changing their laws as they discover a need, while others carved out clear policies concerning what was and wasn’t covered by state healthcare.

One state the set its own clear regulations is the state of Wisconsin. One of the limits that the state set on Medicaid distributed through the state is that it should not cover elective surgeries and treatments. Now, two transgender Wisconsin residents have filed a federal lawsuit, claiming that the state’s refusal to pay for their gender reassignment surgeries is discrimination.

They’re hoping to force Wisconsin’s Medicaid program, it’s taxpayers, to pay for their reassignment surgeries and “damages.”

Cody Flack is a 30-year-old woman who now ‘identifies’ as a man, and Sara Ann Makenzie is a 41-year-old man who now identifies as a woman.

The pair, angry that the state will not pay for their transitional procedures, is challenging a 1997 Wisconsin regulation that holds “transsexual surgery” medically unnecessary, and therefore not a procedure eligible for Medicaid coverage.

Flack and Makenzie claim that they suffer from “gender dysphoria,” a mental health illness classified in the DSM-5, which basically makes the sufferer feel like they don’t belong in their body and would rather be the opposite sex.

Furthermore, the pair claim that there is no scientific basis for Wisconsin’s decision to deny gender reassignment, or the choice to classify it as an elective surgery, which is completely false.

They say that there is a “strong medical consensus” that the best treatment for the mental health condition known as ‘gender dysphoria’ is sex reassignment surgery and hormone treatments.

The attorneys acting on behalf of the pair claim that Medicaid operates with federal funds, but is operated by the state government.

They say denying the pair services ‘that they desire’ amounts to discrimination based on gender identity.

Another reason why UHC, or U, anything never works.

I'm still trying to figure out why gender identity is a protected class.

Its amazing how the loony left tells us that its none of our business if men want to pretend to be women or women wanting to pretend to be men.But they think we should pay the surgeries of loonies who think they were born the wrong sex and that we should legally recognize them as what ever sex they are pretending to be.

Don't be so confident the lawsuit will fail. Look at the Federal lawsuit that overturned proposition 8 in California leading to the SCOTUS decree of a so-called right to same sex marriage. All it takes is a sympathetic judge willing to substitute their belief of what the law ought to be.

Something tells me their reply will be something like,

"Because it's none of your business except when it comes to paying for it, you meanies!"
