For young people, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is an unmitigated disaster. Higher costs, worse care…the nightmare goes on.
Now it looks like students at one college will pay a few dollars extra per year to cover sex change operations:
University of Illinois trustees today approved a student health insurance plan for the Urbana-Champaign campus that will for the first time cover gender reassignment surgery, a benefit they approved for the Chicago campus last year.
The trustees’ 8-2 decision came after about 20 minutes of discussion and followed public comments by two students and an employee who counsels the university’s transgender students.
Trustee Dr. Timothy Koritz and student trustee Michael Cunningham voted against it.
