In a new front in the battle about treatment for transgender people, a Senate Republican on Monday filed a proposal that could lead to some employers being required to cover costs to reverse treatment for gender dysphoria.
Sen. Blaise Ingoglia, R-Spring Hill, filed the bill (SB 952) for consideration during the legislative session that will start March 7.
It comes after Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration blocked Medicaid coverage for treatments such as puberty blockers and hormone therapy for people with gender dysphoria. Also, state medical boards have backed rules that would prevent doctors from providing such treatments to transgender minors.
