HHS: Hey, never mind about Medicare/Medicaid covering sex-change operations

posted at 11:31 am on March 30, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

I’ve seen plenty of Friday night news dumps, but I’ve never actually seen a Friday night double-dump … until now.  Earlier in the day, the website of the Department of Health and Human Services invited comment on a proposal to cover sex-change operations through Medicare and Medicaid. After a number of news agencies reported on the proposal, however, HHS scrubbed the site:

The Health and Human Services Department said early Friday that it would accept public comments on whether to reexamine its decision not to cover sex changes.

But a spokesperson said Friday evening that the proposal has been withdrawn. HHS pulled information from its website Friday after various news media outlets reported on the issue. …

An HHS spokesman said HHS’ Departmental Appeals Board is weighing a challenge to the department’s ruling that sex-change procedures are experimental and should not be covered by Medicare and Medicaid. While that challenge works its way through the system, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has withdrawn its proposal to reconsider the coverage policy on its own.

Well, what’s the problem?  After all, Medicare and Medicaid are on solid fiscal footing, with no unfunded future liabilities promising an economic collapse in the next decade or two.  ObamaCare is proving to be much less costly than anyone predicted, and doctors and other providers are simply flocking to the Medicare/Medicaid system thanks to its generous reimbursement schedules for all sorts of other maintenance and surgical procedures.

I’m sorry … let me turn off MSNBC.

It doesn’t take brain surgery to figure out why this proposal got pulled.  The White House has been under fire all week thanks to two separate studies showing that ObamaCare will create large increases in premiums and job losses as it goes into effect next year.  Congress has been arguing over how to limit the current Medicare/Medicaid systems to keep them from going broke and taking the American economic system with them.  Some genius at HHS thinks this is the most propitious moment to talk about sticking taxpayers with sex-change surgery bills?

Smooth move.  But don’t think for a moment this won’t come back later, either.

That’s guaranteed. It’ll either be slipped in to the regulations (running at 20,000 pages so far and still counting), or a court suit will be filed charging discrimination.

I agree with BobMbx — it was a try to ride a current controversy to some new, expanded result.

I work with a guy who had his man parts cut off and gigantic blobs of silicone implanted in his chest. Changed his name to something more feminine and wants everyone to call him ‘her’. He’s actually pretty conservative or libertarian on most other issues and he works pretty hard. Pretty much everybody else calls him ‘her’; I’m waiting for the day I get fired for calling him ‘him’. In general most people will go along to get along, no matter what they believe. So what am I saying?

But don’t think for a moment this won’t come back later, either.

I recall reading a medical article in the past year or so that reported on the alarmingly high rate of suicides among the population of patients who had completed sex changes.

Aside from the fact that we simply cannot afford to finance sex-change operations, it appears that there is compelling reason to question whether or not these operations are actually beneficial for people with gender confusion issues.

Perhaps instead of allowing pop culture and troubled celebrity kids to determine how we allocate our scarce medical resources, we should actually look at some science on the matter.

Let’s see the cheaper operative procedures average about $60,000.00 per each mutilation of each deranged individual. This doesn’t include the psychiatric bills and the lifetime hormones.

Maybe Obamacare will cover transitional wardrobe changes as reparative therapy as well.

Now since some folks think this process toward true identity should begin with children and insist that schools from elementary level to college endorse this lunacy by changing their policies…These expenditures could explode over the lifetime of each individual seeking public funding on their quest to personal true identity.

Of course to be fair…since these are cosmetic procedures designed to be psychologically reparative procedures…shouldn’t womyn who want bigger breasts to feel better about themselves be covered as well?

Carried to it’s logical absurdity…

How bout bald men seeking hair transplants because this allows for fairer competition in the youth oriented marketplace?

Rhinoplasty & face lifts?

Strippers & Porn artists getting public funding for enhancements in order to persue their occupations properly.

Anyone with a threatened self esteem can justify seeking remedy through cosmetic surgery by applying this legal loophole to their own case of public funding for their wounded Narcissism.

BobMbx on March 30, 2013 at 12:16 PM

If this nonsense was ever implemented, what would be the bottom age limit for the operation?

I read a recent story of a six year old boy who believes he’s a girl. His parents indulge this gender-identity crisis, and have gone so far as to demand his school let him use the girl’s lavatory. He dresses as a girl and expected to be treated as one at school. I bet there is plenty of extra security for him so he doesn’t get bullied.

What to do in this case, if gender-alteration surgery is covered under Ocare and the parents want to physically mutilate their son because he needs a shrink and better (read: not trendy liberal) parents?

Whoever thinks Ocare should cover this kind of procedure really needs their head examined.

The science I was referring to is in the follow-up studies done on patients who complete sex changes. Those studies report a very high rate (over 40%, IIRC) of successful suicides among that patient population.

That science has not been altered, it’s just conveniently ignored by the MSM. They report lots of stories about the adventures of people like Chastity/Chaz Bono and the wannabe-transgendered kids of celebrities like Brad Pitt and Warren Beatty. But those stories are always spun in a positive light, and there’s never any mention of the high rate of suicide (and other self-destructive behaviors like alcoholism and drug abuse) among the people who have completed sex changes.

If the public knew that nearly half of all people who complete sex changes end up killing themselves, would we still be “celebrating” transgender identification? Or would we be trying to find more effective and humane ways to address gender confusion issues?

I have as little love for Obamacare as anyone else. But I’m skeptical that the jump in medical costs directly due to an increase in demand for services is going to be quite as large as some are predicting. Generally speaking, people don’t like going to doctors, for a lot of reasons, some good and some bad. I don’t know if increased accessibility is going to change that that much.

I hope you are right but I know far to many people who spend a lot of time working the system. Long long before Obamacare was even a twinkle in the eye, I had a neighbor who would keep her sick children home and take them to the emergency room because her insurance didn’t require a co-pay on “emergencies”. She can’t be the only one since they got rid of that “perk” p.d.q.!

Speaking of Ms./Mr. Bono, I read a story on her/him a few months ago that reported that Bono has not had her genitalia altered. The article said Bono is unsure if s/he wants to have the operation. Did not say why she’s reluctant, but I wonder if she’s become familiar with the research on the poor outcomes of others who’ve had the surgery?

Also, remember that pregnant “man” that People magazine kept putting on its cover? S/he also did not ever have the surgery to change her genitalia. She just had her breasts surgically reduced, and took male hormones to get facial hair, a deeper voice, etc. When she “married” another woman and they wanted kids, the “husband” decided to put her female organs into service, and she became pregnant and gave birth three times. Now she wants a divorce, but can’t get one because the judge says the biological-mother-of-three was never really a man and therefore wasn’t legally married to her “wife.”

What this gentleman wants to imply is that racism is alive and flourishing, and all the equal opportunity and quota and all the other forced programs are paper programs to hide the racists.

What he doesn’t even hint at is the reason for high black unemployment, or if/where unemployment diverges significantly from the average black employment rate.

Deep blue large cities have very high unemployment rates for blacks (Detroit, for example). Now, compare that to an average town in Iowa or TN. Much better results there. So it isn’t racism, its something else, he knows what it is, and won’t say it.

But if you pass a law that says all public stadiums must have an Emperor’s Bathroom, properly fitted and befitting an Emperor, for all Napoleon citizens — welcome to the asylum.

After a number of news agencies reported on the proposal, however, HHS scrubbed the site:

The Obama era scrubbed another news item yesterday, that his pampered primadonna daughters just returned from the Bahamas to go skiing in Sun Valley, having skied Aspen just two weeks ago.

Work harder, fools.

The WH continues it’s laser-like focus on JOBS. At least in their propaganda arm.

You sound like a really confused liberal, and like all liberals you only want laws that support your views … even if those views go against the Laws of Mother Nature.

BTW, I never advocated “sexual relationships with children,” so don’t attribute your views to mine. Here, hope this helps:

Definition of PUBERTY1: the condition of being or the period of becoming first capable of reproducing sexually marked by maturing of the genital organs, development of secondary sex characteristics, and in the human and in higher primates by the first occurrence of menstruation in the female
2: the age at which puberty occurs often construed legally as 14 in boys and 12 in girls

What this gentleman wants to imply is that racism is alive and flourishing, and all the equal opportunity and quota and all the other forced programs are paper programs to hide the racists…

…(so) it isn’t racism, its something else, he knows what it is, and won’t say it.

Bob, if you’d watched all 20 minutes(or, at least the first 5 minutes) of this link:

“Horrifying-Slash-Fascinating Video of Cultural Marxists Screaming At Each Other Like Mental Patients…”

You’d have to admit that the gentlemen’s mental state precludes him from knowing what is underlying the Black unemployment problem.

But whether he knows or not, his actions will not achieve a positive solution– he simply plays into the hands of the politician comfortable in deploying the ‘class warfare’ tactic of being the false saviour for the “minority” class.

Sorry Karmi, the “you sound like a liberal” dodge doesn’t work on me. You’re the one advocating hitting on kids just after puberty.

But those stories are always spun in a positive light, and there’s never any mention of the high rate of suicide (and other self-destructive behaviors like alcoholism and drug abuse) among the people who have completed sex changes.

Liberal One … what are you trying to say, that the Gov’t shouldn’t allow men to have sex with girls until after they exit Menopause? Clearly, you want BIG GOV’T enforcing your views, and that makes you a liberal.
