Transgender Surgery-Medicare

In this May 29, 2014 photo, Denee Mallon takes part in the Trans March to Morningside Park in Albuquerque, N.M. A U.S. Department of Health and Services review board ruled Friday, May 30, in favor of Mallon, a 74-year-old Army veteran, whose request to have Medicare pay for her genital reconstruction was denied two years ago. The decision recognizes sex reassignment surgeries as a medically necessary and effective treatment for individuals who do not identify with their biological sex. (AP Photo/Craig Fritz)
