Wisconsin now covering sex-reassignment surgeries for trans-identified employees

Wisconsin is now paying for sex reassignment surgeries and hormone therapy for state employees after trans-identified workers sued the state.Beginning Jan. 1, the state’s Group Insurance Board began covering hormone treatments and sex change operations for state employees suffering from gender dysphoria, according to Wisconsin Public Radio.The move comes after the board had previously excluded coverage of gender transition surgeries. Because such procedures were not covered by the state, the state was sued by trans-identified employees who were refused coverage. They were represented by the left-leaning nonprofit legal group the American Civil Liberties Union.
