Oregon Dems Demand Insurance Companies Cover Sex Changes

  • An Oregon bill which seeks to mandate insurance companies to the cover experimental sex change procedures specifically excludes detransition-related treatments.
  • HB 2002 requires that health insurance companies cover “medically necessary” procedures such as hair electrolysis, tracheal shaves, and facial feminisation surgery for trans-identified males, but when one Republican representative proposed adding coverage for detransition-related treatments, it was flatly rejected by Democrats.
  • Rep. Ed Diehl took to Twitter to call out the wording of the bill, arguing that Democrats refused to include detransition care because acknowledging that detransition occurs means acknowledging that gender identity is not immutable.
