Weekend update coda

The FEHBlog received comments on last weekend’s entry concerning coverage of gender reassignment surgery. Joe Davidson in the Washington Post had announced that AFSPA will cover gender reassignment surgery next year. AFPSA / the Foreign Service Benefit Plan is open to  Foreign Service personnel  and employees of the State Department, the Defense Department and a few other agencies (as well as annuitants).  The FEHBlog received comments asking whether other plans would be covering the procedure next year. He discovered that Aetna’s FEHB plans also will cover the procedure for 2015.  Other plans may offer the coverage too.
