Duke University has become the latest in a long and growing parade of institutions that will cover sex-change operations on student health insurance plans.
“Sexual reassignment surgery for transgendered students will be covered in students’ health care plans, effective this Fall,” the Duke Chronicle recently reported.
Yale University is also considering such a measure for students (it already ponies up for faculty and staff). Cornell, Harvard, Stanford and Penn offer such surgeries on their health plans already.
And the domino effect continues.
Already Duke University’s decision has prompted the UNC-system to consider the same, the Daily Tar Heel reported Monday.
