State data show doctors performed 15 gender-affirming surgical procedures on Florida children last year

Just how common is it for Medicaid to reimburse for gender-affirming care?

Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) data shows not very.

AHCA data provided to Florida Politics shows the number of adults and children receiving gender-affirming care and the care Medicaid reimbursed for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017-18 through FY 2021-22.

Medicaid does not provide any benefits to children without parental consent. Children are defined as beneficiaries under 21 years of age, meaning the children category could include information on 18,19 or 20-year-old beneficiaries.

Data show that 12 children and 13 adults underwent surgical procedures in FY 2021-22 that Medicaid reimbursed.
