New HHS Rule Would Force Insurers to Pay for Children’s Sex Changes

Nutshell?


Insurance companies were already paying for this due to the back lash from the unicorn farts and glitter bombs within the LGBTQ, but now? Now it's illegal NOT to cover children's medical transition.


Guys, listen I don't know how many times I have to say:


WAKE UP.
CALM. RATIONAL. DEBATE.
Is Not Working
Time to Flip Some Desks!

Join me, help me! I need investors. What do I guarantee? You will not find a more committed person! Pharma is investing millions a month to buy up all the google slots...We have to compete...Donate...Invest...Help Brand, Get A Shirt & SCREAM Louder.

The Department of Health and Human Services announced a new rule Monday that would force insurance providers to pay for breast removal and other transgender surgeries, including for minors.


The proposed rule change by the federal agency concerns Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, a section of the law that prohibits discrimination in health programs based on race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.

In a conference call with reporters, Melanie Fontes Rainer, acting director of the Office for Civil Rights at the Department of Health and Human Services, said that under the proposed changes, the definition of discrimination based on “sex” would be expanded to include gender identity, sexual orientation, and abortion.


Chiquita Brooks-LaSure, administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, added that the new rules would “promote health equity” and contain provisions for “medically necessary care.”


“This work will help eliminate avoidable differences in health outcomes experienced by those who are underserved and provide the care and support that people need to thrive,” Brooks-LaSure said.


Transgender activists often describe procedures for minors, including cross-sex hormones and so-called gender-affirming surgery, as medically necessary.

The HHS rule change also would prohibit discrimination based on the revised definition of sex discrimination, as well as require organizations receiving federal funding to implement “civil rights procedures and processes.”


Notably, Rainer said that “discrimination on the basis of sex includes discrimination on the basis of pregnancy or related conditions, including ‘pregnancy termination.’”

The agency’s description of the proposed rule change is available here on the HHS website.

Roger Severino, vice president for domestic policy at The Heritage Foundation, sees the rule change as dangerous for children. (The Daily Signal is Heritage’s multimedia news organization.)


“This rule will mandate that insurance companies cover the full menu of gender identity interventions such as mastectomies, hysterectomies, breast augmentation, hair removal, and a lifetime of cross-sex hormones, including for minor children,” said Severino, who headed HHS’ Office for Civil Rights during the Trump administration.

“It would also force doctors to perform cross-sex surgeries and to administer puberty blockers to children if they believe such interventions ‘can never be beneficial,’” he said.

Severino referred to Section 92.206 of the rule, in which the Department of Health and Human Services explicitly says that doctors who view such treatments as harmful in all cases must perform them anyway or risk losing federal funding.


This change of the rules “flips medicine on its head,” he argued.

Severino also said medical providers will lose federal funding even if they follow state law prohibiting medical gender interventions for minors.


During the phone call with reporters, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said repeatedly that his goal in instituting the rule change was to prevent perceived discrimination in health care.


“We want to make sure that Americans are free from discrimination when getting the health care that they need,” Becerra said, before adding that the rule change would “promote gender and health equity.”



When asked by reporters if the proposed rule changes were in response to an increase in complaints surrounding abortion, Becerra declined to answer.

Becerra noted that the proposed rule change is still subject to public comment before it is finalized.


“We’ll move as quickly as we can,” Becerra said in response to a question on when he hoped the rule change would be put into place. The HHS secretary added that the process would be done “hopefully by next year, if not sooner.”


The Daily Signal sought clarification and additional comment from the Department of Health and Human Services, but did not receive a response in time for publication.

Signed up for recurring monthly donations. Wish it could be more. I have a drive to help with this. Unfortunately, I don't have a platform or large enough audience to share with or get involved, so I commented on Tim Pool's video, about the Tavistock shutting down & told him about what you're trying to do with Tre but need more support. I suggested he bring you onto his nightly podcast, Timcast IRL so you get more There wasn't a ton of comments yet so hopefully he'll see it.

If people or insurance companies would learn that these are offers of contract and can be rebutted by a three step non consent and conditional acceptance process and affidavit creating a private default judgement and equitable estoppel agreement with whoever or whatever is trying to force new regulations on them or their organisation and that they cannot be enforced without getting you to volunteer to do them (in other words acquiesce by performance or by saying nothing), then we would start to find a way out of this tangle. A great place to learn how to do this is a site in Australia called solutions empowerment.com. You learn there how to do these processes for yourself and empower yourself an…
