So Few Transgenders in Military, Costs Negligible

A newly-published study by homosexual advocates, funded by the Pentagon, estimates that only 188 of the 2,136,779 Active and Selected Reserve personnel currently serving — less than a hundredth of one percent — will be in need of medical treatment annually for sexual confusion.  However, as President Obama was forcing acceptance of his transformed, Gay Agenda military, claims were made of several tens of thousands of transgenders secretly serving.

-- From "Cost of transition-related care for transgender troops will be minimal, report says" by Lydia Wheeler, The Hill 08/13/15

The cost to provide transition-related care to transgender people serving in the military will be “too low to warrant consideration in the current policy debate,” a new report published in The New England Journal of Medicine found.

Dr. Aaron Belkin, founding director of the Palm Center, a research institute that’s focused on LGBT issues, estimates the cost of offering transition-related care will amount to $5.6 million annually, or 22 cents per transgender service member per month.

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter announced last month that the military would be lifting its ban on transgender service members. . . .

The sum amounts to just 22 cents per service member per month, said Aaron Belkin, an academic at San Francisco State University, adding that the military's annual healthcare budget is currently $47.8 billion.

Last month, defense chief Ash Carter backed the admission to the U.S. military of openly transgender people for the first time, setting up a working group to study the issue "with the presumption that transgender persons can serve openly without adverse impact".

Some criticized Carter's decision. "I'm not sure how paying for transgender surgery for soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines makes our country safer," Mike Huckabee, a presidential candidate, said in the first Republican debate last Thursday.

By estimating how many closeted transgender people currently serve in the military, and looking at what has happened in Australia, which already funds transition-related care, Belkin predicts around 188 service members would get care annually.

From "Cost of treating transgender troops called negligible" by Tom Vanden Brook, USA TODAY 8/12/15

The article, "Caring for Our Transgender Troops — The Negligible Cost of Transition-Related Care," was written by Aaron Belkin, director of the Palm Center, which researches issues regarding sexual orientation issues in the military.

The relatively cheap treatment should allay concerns about the cost of rescinding the ban, Belkin said in an interview.

"I was particularly surprised at the number in the context of what the military overall spends on health care," Belkin said.
