Medicare Could Soon Cover Sex Change Operations

Why not. I mean, it’s not like Medicare is in fiscal crisis or anything.

For the first time since 1981, when it dubbed sex-change operations “experimental,” Medicare has opened the door to covering transexual operations, adding to the growing list of operations that would be allowed under Obamacare.

Acting on a new request, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services said it is starting a new analysis that could lift the spending ban for sex-change operations with a goal of making a decision two days after Christmas and on the eve of Obamacare kicking in Jan. 1.

But remember, we can’t keep a $40,000/year rest area open in North Dakota because sequester.
