Screwed again! Gender reassignment is specifically exempted, Along with dental and abortion. Hey Romney would have done that too. And I thought SRS/GRS was the silver lining in this dark cloud of "Obamacare"!
I and a few others went with Romney on general princibles, but the vast majority of TGes and TSes voted for Obama thinking he would do something for them. Yeah, He did something allright, he screwed us over.

They don't know what preventative care means, that's the problem. They'd rather wait until things become an actual emergency, costing more than 100 times what it should as a result, than taking care of it when it's ... well ... affordable.

The dental issue, low income people in Washington have been denied dental coverage for a long time now, we spend way more emergencies with tooth infections from cavities that were unaddressed than we ever spent on fillings, even if we gave them all porcelain caps instead of the cheap metal ones. That's what the US has to look forward too. Have a pain? Well, you are dying so it's not important yet, come back when there's blood and we'll take a look at you.

Well, there is some coverage here, for kids. lol Yeah, take care of the teeth they're going to lose anyway. Genius.

Yeah, this city is so ... strange. We're great on equality, excellent civil laws ... but our financial and medical system is messed up, and no one wants to actually address the problems. We see a problem, and instead of addressing the problem itself it's "throw more money at it, maybe it will go away."

Not for adults in California. It was one of the budget cuts. It's only available for children.

This is what aggravates no end! I don't consider myself well off by any means. Maybe I don't know how to figure it. I feel like my head is just above water, But really not that far. However, Most folks and the Govt seem to think I'm well off enough that I can pay for everything myself. I had some dental work done and we discussed doing the rest of it. It was eight thousand $ up front! As a former Construction Manager, I never let anyone "Front end load" a job by paying in advance. So as a result, the work is still there, undone.
