Insurance?

For us insurance is a big question mark, what will the Trump administration do about insurance coverage for us, if the rumors are true we will lose our insurance coverage in Medicare and through the ACA (Obamacare). Well from an unexpected source we could find some relief.

"For Christians who have seen this violence and have been horrified by it, it’s time to put your tithe money where your beliefs are."

A new campaign is asking Christians to fund gender-confirmation procedures for transgender people as a form of reparations for past discrimination.

Many churches encourage members to tithe, but the Tithe Trans campaign organized by Faithfully LGBT is asking supporters to donate to the trans community, rather than church coffers.

“There needs to be tangible ways that progressive Christians, who disagree with anti-trans theology, give to the transgender community,” says Eliel Cruz, founder of Faithfully LGBT. “I want Tithe Trans to be a way for Christians to begin to pay reparations for the damage we have caused.”
They are asking for donations for…
Donations will be directed to the Jim Collins Foundation, a nonprofit that provides grants for gender-confirming procedures. Organizers have set a fundraising goal of $10,000, and while #TitheTrans is targeting Christians, the initiative is open to anyone.
This is fantastic!

But the problem is that so many trans people need financial assistance that this will cover only a few trans people each year. What we need is strong insurance coverage, one that you don’t have to fight at every turn. Insurance companies refuse to cover almost anything related to trans healthcare even the most basic coverage, their vocabulary consist of one word, no. They are counting on us not to challenge their decision, even if only 1% doesn’t appeal their decision they make money.
