“Bo-tax” Gone

In the health care reform debate in the Senate, the so-called “Bo-tax,” a tax on plastic surgery, is no longer in either the Senate version of the bill and never was in the House versions. While not a trans-specific item, it could possibly negatively impact transgender people seeking transition-related surgeries.

The passage of health care reform legislation will provide avenues for many more Americans, including transgender people, to be able to afford health care and we’ve been closely monitoring and participating in the discussions with policy makers.
