Emerson College (USA)

Emerson College issued a statement that it contacted ­Aetna, its student insurance provider, for clarification after Donny Collins’s request for breast removal surgery was rejected. The college said its policy has included benefits for transgender medical care since 2006, but “the policy language had ­inadvertently not been updated by Aetna on their internal documents.” Aetna will now pay for the surgery to remove her healthy breasts.
