The University of California (UC) – Berkeley student healthcare plan includes coverage of up to $75,000 for students who wish to undergo a sex-change operation, a trove of documents obtained on Monday by Campus Reform reveals.

According to the 2012-13 UC Berkeley Student Health Insurance Plan Benefits Booklet, the public university will fund 90 percent of the controversial operation or up to $75,000.

UC Berkeley’s healthcare plan covers up to $75,000 for students who would like to undergo a sex-change operation.

The school will also fund “hormone therapy” and “gender confirmation (reassignment) surgery” as well as well as “certain travel costs” for the operation due to a “limited number of providers” in the area.

The costs for a sex change operation alone, without additional travel costs, can exceed $50,000. Many private health care providers do not pay for these operations due to their cost and questionable health benefits.

The documents also reveal that the university health plan will cover up to 90-percent of costs for abortions.

Despite multiple inquiries the UC’s administration did not reveal the number of sex-change operations or abortions provided under the plan or when the plan was amended to include these controversial operations.

Students are automatically enrolled in the university’s health care plan and must apply for a waiver to be exempt from purchasing it.

The UC Berkeley website describes the health plan as “a comprehensive major medical insurance plan, providing medical, counseling, prescription, vision and dental services.”
