We’re celebrating a favorable insurance ruling

Lina and I (just back from a glorious week in New Mexico!) this week learned that she won an appeal regarding short-term disability insurance when she was out of work for “facial feminization surgery.” I’ll post details when we get the press release from the awesome organization that helped us. In a nutshell, the insurance company and Lina’s employer did what we felt was the right thing after they heard her reasons for appeal, that FFS is part of the transgender process. Across the country, various medical procedures in the transition process are starting to be covered by companies’ insurance policies, a change we vigorously applaud!
