Obama Regime Re-Writes ObamaCare Law Again: Obama Expands Obamacare Protections For The Transgendered

The Daily Caller reports on Strongman Barack Obama:

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced a planned new regulation Thursday that will require health insurers participating in Obamacare to cover more health procedures sought by the transgendered.

The new rule applies to every health insurer offering plans through or any of the state-run Obamacare insurance exchanges. It declares that insurers are prohibited from engaging in discrimination not only on the basis of sex, but also on the basis of gender identity.

In the past, several health insurance plans have categorically excluded health care related to transitioning between genders, often on the grounds that such procedures are often cosmetic, not medically necessary, and elective in nature. Now, such categorical bans will be disallowed, and insurers will have to cover many of the procedures.

There's more:
The new regulation also includes other provisions intended to help women, the disabled, and those who can’t speak English. For instance, insurers may be expected to provide sign language interpreters for the deaf so they can communicate better with health care providers.

Strongman Obama makes his own law. Just a reminder, the more health insurance companies are saddled with mandated benefits: the more expensive health insurance becomes.
