Do you accept Medicare for MTF transgender surgery?

Dr. Reed,

Will you accept Medicare for my MTF vaginoplasty? Have been living as a woman for 8 years 24/7.  I am 5′ 8″ and weigh 165 pounds.  Mention this because we spoke 2 years ago and you said I’d be a better surgical candidate if I lost some weight.  Then was 180. Alicia

Dear Alicia,

Your weight is perfect for your height. Congratulations. While we do not accept Medicare, our hospital does.  So this will take care of facility fee and anesthesia.  Given that, we can reduce our fee by several thousand dollars.

Shop for price yes, but more important is quality of medical care, physician accessibility and most important experience. I have noted that doctors who have done a lot of work post before and after photos of their transgender vaginoplasty patients on their web-site.
