San Francisco's universal health care program "Healthy San Francisco" is about to start covering surgery for transgender patients according to the advocacy group "Project Health."

The services, including sex reassignment surgery and other medically-necessary procedures, have been excluded until now.

There's no word yet on when the changes will be implemented. The city already offers similar benefits to transgender city employees.
