Quote: August 2011 - Such excellent NEWS - The VA system recently received a directive that transgendered veterans receive appropriate treatment (including hormone replacement and even surgery). November 1st 2009 New regulations by the Medical Council of Thailand. The council moved recently to strictly control sexchange operations and require that transgender people consult a gender specialist, psychologist or psychiatrist, live as female for a year and receive hormone therapy before such an operation is permitted. The new regulations require that surgeons or physicians undertaking the sexchange be registered with the Medical Council. They must also treat any complications that occur following surgery. Surgeons who violate the new regulations face warnings or the threat of having their medical licence revoked. Research News: October 2008. Australian researchers have identified a significant link between a gene involved in testosterone action and male-to-female transsexualism - .Terry Reed from the Gender Identity Research and Education Society said she was convinced of a biological basis to transsexualism. "This study appears to reinforce earlier studies which have indicated that, in some trans people, there may be a genetic trigger to the development of an atypical gender identity'(see research link below). "However, it may be just one of several routes and, although it seems extremely likely that a biological element will always be present in the aetiology of transsexualism, it's unlikely that developmental pathways will be the same in all individuals'. -Quote of the week: June 17, 2008 NCTE Applauds the AMA Call for "Removal of Financial Barriers to Care for Transgender Patients" - The American Medical Association (AMA) passed a resolution recently calling for "public and private health insurance coverage for treatment of gender identity disorder as recommended by the patient's physician." The declaration, known as Resolution 122, "Removing Financial Barriers to Care for Transgender Patients," was passed by the House of Delegates - AMA's primary decision-making body - at its annual conference in Chicago. - Resolution 122 affirms the effectiveness of medical treatment for transsexuals and the right to appropriate treatment. It also names as discriminatory the categorical denial of health insurance coverage for psychotherapy, hormonal and surgical treatments for transgender patients, and reiterates the AMA's opposition to discrimination based on gender identity. The full text of the resolution is below. - An expert said the findings reported in BJU International reflected patients' determination to undergo the op. - "America's physicians are saying that transgender people, like all others, deserve competent medical care based on what individual doctors and their patients determine is healthiest for each person," noted Mara Keisling, Executive Director of the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE). "Doctors and patients, not insurance companies, should be making those choices. We are so glad that the AMA has taken a leadership role against the rampant discrimination that transgender people have faced for so many years in receiving appropriate medical care and equitable insurance coverage," - Health insurance coverage has been made into prominent national issue recently thanks in part to a three year campaign by the AMA. NCTE has prioritized ending health insurance discrimination against transgender people.
