Biden to make taxpayers pick up tab for federal employees’ sex change surgeries

Oct 15, 2022 | Political News

The Biden administration has announced the expansion of taxpayer-funded “gender-affirming” healthcare for transgender and “gender diverse” federal employees.

The updated healthcare package was rolled out in early October by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), an independent government agency that acts as the chief of human resources and personnel policy manager for the federal government. The OPM's “Federal Benefits Open Season” fact sheet for people covered under the Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB) program states that the agency is “pleased to deliver enhanced health benefit offerings” in the form of “gender affirming care and services.”
