Beneficiary of surgery is second under gender-reassignment policy put in place in 2010

A 21-year-old in foster care had a sex change operation paid for by the city under a policy that covers such procedures if the person has no insurance coverage.

The patient underwent the procedure in Pennsylvania last Wednesday to become a woman.

She is the second beneficiary of the gender-reassignment policy, which was put in place in 2010.

Mariah Lopez, an activist with Strategic Transgender Alliance for Radical Reform, said the city Administration for Children’s Services approved the surgery before the woman turned 21, the age at which most leave the foster care system.

The woman, whose name was not released, will “inspire others,” said Lopez. “What’s happening now is a shift by ACS, in the largest city in the world, influencing health care nationally.”

Activist Mariah Lopez sees an ACS “shift” that will influence “health care nationally.”

ACS would not comment on the surgery, citing confidentiality laws.
