Big Brother Barack Rewrites O-Care Again to Include Transgender Procedures

Once again, Barack Obama rewrote his Obamacare regulations.
His latest changes will force insurance companies to cover many procedures sought by the transgendered.
obamacare

And, you get to pay for it!
The Daily Caller reported, via News Alert:

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 Healthcare.gov 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.

    why should insurance companies be forced to pay for elective procedures, you were born like that so now live with it.

    The Dr. that said these ‘gender identity’ cases needed LOTS of therapy was/is correct yet ignored by the media; the LEFT is ‘pervert inc.’ sycophants from the word go…change ‘Gay pride parade’ to Perverts march….

    i predicted this before obamacare was passed.
    It is yet another variation on Cloward-Piven agenda to bankrupt the middle class

  • poindexter

    so wait…send the kentucky clerk to jail for not following a law but let the president rewrite laws that he has no authority to rewrite? WTH? republicans are no different that democraps…they won’t stop this lawless president because they are afraid of being called racist.

  • Marty MacKoy

    This is no different than a child born with a cleft palate. We have the ability to give people a better life and if you pay for insurance, you should get what you pay for. Yes, insurance companies should have to cover it.

  • physicsnut

    oh – and they want hormone therapy , and a shrink, and all the BEST DOCTORS too – to take care of all those incurable diseases they get.
    If you think i am making this up – check out an outfit called ‘out-fm’
    which has a weekly broadcast on WBAI – you can hear them explain it in great detail.
    obamacare guarantees that health care WILL BE POLITICIZED – as i argued before it was enacted by that creepy Pelosi and her pals.

    And next president can repeal it along with ACA and tell Obamato GFY

    Dept. of Health and Human Services eliminates rape by reclassifying assailants as ‘undocumented sex partners’

  • But according to the actual DHHS “fact-sheet” rule 1557 has been in effect since the ACA passed in 2010 and has been enforced by ACA in this manner already. This is not a “rule change” but a clarification of what the HHS has been already doing since 2010.

    Aren’t they the one’s saying that government officials should follow the law? The KY clerk has to but the President doesn’t?

  • BlueEyedDevil

    Ya but just one big one right in the middle of the chest.

    What an ongoing sick comedy.
    Everything this idiot and his ilk do is one big double-speak of oxymorons and contradictions that would be hilarious if they didn’t cause such a disaster.

    “Affordable Healthcare Act”
    No one can afford it as individuals or as a civilization.
    It doesn’t provide healthcare, it proscribes that everyone shall buy insurance.

    “Universal”?
    Sounds like they would provide the basic services that everyone benefits from.
    But no.
    Everyone has teeth. Or at least everyone started out with teeth. And eating is a necessity that everyone must do in order to continue living. So is dentistry covered? NO!
    Everyone started out with eyes also. And seeing is a pretty important part of living a healthy life without being injured or killed. So optometry is covered, right? NO!
    Something like 99% of the population need those services, and neither are covered.

    But if you are one of the fraction of a percentage of the population with a mental disorder that causes you to want to have the sexual organs of the opposite sex instead of the ones you were born with, they have you covered!

    This program is just an entitlement for degenerates and perverts.

  • Rickuh

    Since the new “law” affecting virtually everyone in the US is merely a regulation, Congress is not required to do anything – except wring their hands in protest.

  • JY1

    Nobody ever starved to death because they had completely healthy human bodies except for the claim that they were “a man born in a woman’s body” or “a woman born in a man’s body”.

    Fixing an actual birth defect, like a cleft palate, which impairs the normal function and health of a human being is not elective, it is necessity.

  • BlueEyedDevil

    This is crap. When will those of us who identify as unicorns finally be given the rights we deserve and to be recognized by this oppressive regime. We have waited far too long for for this world to accept what other people take for granted. Imagine how you would feel if you knew you are supposed to have a majestic horn coming out of your head or knowing you should be peeing standing up in a field outside but being forced to use a cramped bathroom where people stare at you like you’re a freak. #fakeunicornlivesmatter.

  • malachismommy

    Yeah, we really need Mark Levin as our next Attorney General. He’s the best person to rip the disease out of the gubmint regs.

  • 4Truth1st

    Sin is sin and wrong is wrong, as much as Obama is doing everything he can to denigrate what’s good and promote what’s evil. There’s scripture that in end times what’s good will be called evil and vice versa. No man knows the time, but we’re told to be watchful for the signs, and there are many including Iran & Russia in Syria against Israel. Seems things are accelerating and escalating.

  • malachismommy

    They won’t pay, WE will, via increased premiums. Just like the nuns, Little Sisters of the Poor had to pay increased premiums to include birth control when they have a vow of celibacy…. until the Good Sisters stood up to the Dick-tatorship, spent a ton of money and sued, and won. But the rest of us are paying the increased premiums to let the sperm throwers off the hook of buying their own rubber biscuits. This is just another tyrannical way to redistribute wealth. So mad I could spit!

  • cargosquid

    Such
    operations are either elective and cosmetic or the result of a MEDICAL
    problem. Obama has just stated that being confused about gender IS a
    sickness.

  • malachismommy

    Marty, your post is illogical. “whack-a-deek-from-me” surgery and “add-a-deek-to-me” surgery are cosmetic procedures like liposuction, botox injections, and butt lifts, which are NOT covered by insurance.

  • malachismommy

    nor does Lois Lerner, Eric Held Himself or Killary Cankles Clinton and her highness’s staff or Edward Snowden, who probably has everything from Killary’s server.

  • malachismommy

    I agree. Blue lives matter too. I love law enforcement and hate the targeting of them too.

  • malachismommy

    or afraid their private dirt will be exposed by the Thug Administration. It seems our elected representives care most about re-election by making no waves.

    transgenderism is an acknowledged mental disorder, Gender Dysphoria. should we indulge schizophrenics in their delusions?

  • helmethead

    Obama changes the law again?

    Why isn’t he being jailed like the KY clerk?

  • lamb4usa

    I am so sick of this POS a$$hole being a president. he intentionally sticks his middle finger up to us daily. He panders to the LGBT community and does nothing for the inner city blacks. He is without a doubt the most divisive, racist president in history. A complete waste of a human being.

  • Mark

    When is Obama going to have his add-a-dick-to-me procedure?

    tax dollars for the freaks.

    Hope the doctor wipes off the scalpel on his scrubs before he uses in again.

  • Patty

    So, Obama can change Obama care, look at that, Obama care.

    Well what I was going to say was, the King, wait a minute, I was going to say, Obama can change Healthcare to what ever he sees fit, whenever he feels like it without any recourse from Congress? Again, what am I saying, he doesn’t consult them on anything, anyway. The King has spoken. And Congress are spineless wussies.

  • RedSoloCup

    Obama illegally rewriting the “Unaffordable Care act” again for the 400th time, to satisfy his already overinflated PC worldview… this time for another part of his base, the “freaks”.

    He’s an air thief.

  • Highlander

    No Marty, I’m afraid you’re wrong about that. A cleft palate is a BIRTH DEFECT that affects a persons ability to eat, speak, and live a normal life. A sex change is elective surgery, performed to satisfy the whims of a mentally unbalanced individual. I would equate it to breast enlargement, penis enlargement, or a nose job. Are you willing to pick up the tab when every man or woman in America decides they need bigger boobs or penises to be happy? What about the freak who suddenly decides he can’t lead a happy and fulfilling life unless he has a tattoo of a dragon on his back?

    God made us the way we are and people need to learn to live with it. Expecting the taxpayers to pick up the tab for this sort of nonsense is ridiculous, and anyone who supports it is a complete moron.

    Meanwhile, the institution that first performed “transgender” surgery, Johns Hopkins, has stopped doing those procedures because they do not do any good for the patient.

    http://yiannopoulos.net/2014/08/15/transgenderism-is-a-psychiatric-disorder-its-sufferers-need-therapy-not-surgery/

    As Cher famously said “If I want to put my tits on my back, it’s nobody’s business but my own.” Grownups who want to pay for cosmetic surgery, even extreme cosmetic surgery, are and should remain free to do so. It isn’t my or the government’s business to draw the line.

    However, to pretend that this kind of treatment is a medical necessity is malpractice. The drug regimen is permanent, and it is at odds with the person’s chemistry from the cellular level, up. The surgery itself is destructive. Cutting up those tissues inevitably disrupts nerve and vascular function. And these people, who were at risk of suicide before surgery, remain at risk for suicide.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3043071/

    I suspect that far too many people are confused. They think that Star Trek, where extreme surgery was performed fairly regularly, is real. It is not. It was and is a TV show.

  • o0Nighthawk0o

    Question…. Does this also force insurance companies to cover breast implants or liposuction? If not, then the regulation is still discriminatory.

  • scooter

    So, elective surgeries are going to be covered? Woohoo, I can get hair replacement since I still feel like a member of an 80’s hair band… wait just for trannies? That’s discriminatory.

  • Mike

    So once again normal civilized adults will be forced by government to subsidize perverted sexual deviants.

    Where does it stop? It won’t because socialism has never been anything but a gateway drug to full blown communism and we have a Marxist loving communist in the WH.

    It is the “Can’t Afford Care Act”, aka CACA, for our Spanish speaking commie liberals.

    The KY Clerk was following Natural Law and the constitution. Neither oBuzzard or SCOTUS chose to do so.

  • Guest

    Snowden did follow the law as it applies to “Whistle Blowers” until he learned that the Government had no intention of following the Law. The Government ewas Breaking the Law, Violating the US Constitution, therefore , Snowden was within “Whistle Blowers Statutes” toll he found himself in Jeopardy of going to Prison for trying to expose Government criminality.

    No! they’re just Cowards who want to keep their wealth by going along with the Criminals and Criminality at any cost to themselves or anyone else.
    Hitlery Clinton is a Perfect example of the Treason in our government.

    For obozo!

    So you can’t get Catastrophic care to pay just for the care you need but you can get Castration care for what you don’t need and be forced to pay for someone’s sex change operation rather than have them institutionalized for their mental health problems. Madness.

  • Thundercleese

    Does this mean that it can be thrown back to the Supreme Court again, just to be ruled acceptable and thrown in our face as legit?

    If you’re serious this is hilarious. If you’re kidding, this is hilarious.

    Don’t you ever wonder why the GOP has never tried to impeach Obama? Don’t you wonder why Boehner and McConnell talk a big game, but never actually try to stop Obama? Don’t you wonder why Congress holds the purse strings, yet they’ve never tried to defund Obamacare or Obama’s clearly illegal Executive Action on amnesty for illegal aliens? Bizarre, right? It defies logic, right?

    Well first, I’d guess many key Republicans are being bribed. Secondly, I believe many key Republicans are being blackmailed. Whether they are having affairs…or secretly gay…or stealing taxpayer money…the NSA knows everything.

    Ask former House Speaker Dennis Hastert about that. The government even knew he was withdrawing large sums of his own money, from his own bank account. Trust me- the NSA, SEC, IRS and all the other 3-letter government agencies are watching every Republican political leader. They know everything.

    Thirdly, many Republicans are petrified of being called “racists.” So they are scared to ever criticize Obama, or call out his crimes, let alone demand his impeachment.

    Fourth, why rock the boat? After defeat or retirement, if you’re a “good boy” you’ve got a $5 million dollar per year lobbying job waiting.

    The big money interests have the system gamed. Win or lose…they win.
