A federal judge on Wednesday ordered Wisconsin to cover the costs for gender reassignment surgeries for two transgender Medicaid recipients.

Wisconsin residents Cody Flack and Sara Ann Makenzie filed a lawsuit in April over a state rule adopted in 1996 that denied coverage for undefined “transsexual” surgeries, according to The Associated Press.

In the suit, Flack and Makenzie argued that the state rule denying them coverage for surgeries to treat their gender dysphoria is a violation of the Affordable Care Act and their rights to equal protection. They argued that the treatment they are seeking is medically necessary, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The article goes on to state the following:

U.S. District Judge William Conley reportedly granted a preliminary injunction barring the state rule’s enforcement.

The judge also reportedly suggested that the injunction could be expanded to include covering surgeries treating gender dysphoria for any transgender patient on Medicaid whose doctor recommends the procedure.

  1. So this morning I woke up thinking I am a duck and I want feathers to place upon my naked skin. So because of my mental break down taxpayers will be forced to comply with my wishes.

  2. How are these surgeries medically necessary? It’s not a life or death situation! It’s COSMETIC! What other insurance pays for cosmetic surgeries? None!

  3. This should be stopped. They want us taxpayers to pay for their “choice” to carve themselves to change their sex. They should be seeing a psychiatrist, not a surgeon.

  4. No this is wrong , these weirdo’s need to get a job and buy their own Health care . What type of Society is this country becoming . It seems our Politicians are at war with regular straight Americans . That’s nut’s .
