I am completely opposed to Medicare funding of reassignment surgery. With all the proposed cuts in Medicare funding of prosthesis and pneumatic compression devices, etc I am appalled that our government would consider funding for something that is not medically necessary. That should be put of pocket expenses the same as cosmetic surgery & bariatric surgery. As a taxpayer, it infuriates me to think that my tax dollars would go to provide a medically unnecessary and quite costly surgery.
