www.washingtontimes.com Published: February 27, 2014

D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray on Thursday announced that the city will recognize gender identity disorder as a medical condition and mandate insurance companies cover associated treatments — including gender-reassignment surgery.

The coverage extends to all city residents — including the roughly one-third of residents receiving Medicaid benefits — who are diagnosed by a doctor with the condition and for whom treatment is deemed medically necessary.
