Looking for a free sex change operation? Enroll at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. Come August, the school will offer coverage in its student health care plan for the procedure, according to The Daily Caller.
“We identified this as an important benefit for students to have access to,” said Director of Insurance and Purchasing Services Jeanne Hebert, in The Daily Caller report. The new health care provision, she reportedly said, is part of an overall effort “to support all students” at the university.
The insurance offering is substantial; according to industry estimates, sex change operations can cost as much as $50,000, The Daily Caller reported.
At Brown, the covered procedures are “very comprehensive,” said Kelly Garrett, the school’s LGBTQ coordinator, in The Daily Caller report. The plan will cover more than a dozen different procedures, The Daily Caller says.
