Citing such lofty notions as inclusion and equality, Yale University has agreed to pony up for students’ sex change procedures.
“While Yale was not among the first schools to repeal its coverage exclusion, we hope that this represents a commitment to catch up to our peers in terms of offering transgender students an equitable student life and health care experience,” Gabriel Murchison, a member of the Resource Alliance for Gender Equity, told The Yale Daily News.
The school already offers the coverage for employees, and the student coverage for such procedures launches Aug. 1.
So now Yale joins Cornell, Harvard, Stanford and Penn, which offer such surgeries on their health plans already.
Ivy League priorities at their finest, folks.
