Minnesota District Court Judge William Leary issued a ruling on November 14 in a case challenging the state’s 2005 law which banned Medicaid Assistance coverage for “all sex-assignment surgery.”  His ruling overturns the law, stating “the Minnesota Department of Human Services … are now permanently enjoined from denying Medical Assistance and MinnesotaCare benefits to eligible transgender patients in need of medically necessary treatment, including transition-related surgery.”
