Transcript PageS Community News Sex change funding eyed WASHINGTON (AP) — The federal government will review whether Medicare should pay for some sex-change operations, says the secretary of health, education and welfare. Joseph A. Califano Jr. says he has ordered bis health financing chief, Robert Derzon, to set up a panel of experts to review whether transsexual surgery is medically necessary in certain cases. Medicare, which picks up hospital bills for the elderly and disabled, does not now pay for sex- change operations. At issue ts whether such procedures involve proven techniques. A spokeswoman for HEW's Health Care Financing Administration, Pat Schoe- ni, said the U.S. Public Health Service has considered transsexual surgery to be new and experimental and that its safety and effectiveness were not proven. Medicare, run by the federal government, does not pay for unproven techniques. Califano, addressing a convention of newspaper editors, denied a report that Medicare had agreed to pay for a $5,600 sex-change operation for a disabled San Diego man, Robert Bennett, who now calls himself Bobble Lea Bennett. Bennett, 31 and confined to a wheelchair, says he has lived like a woman for the last three years and wants to undergo the surgery. Raid nets 80 pounds of pojt Narcotics detectives said they confiscated 80 pounds of marijuana Friday night in a raid on an East Side home. Narcotics detective Ronnie Dawson, who obtained a search warrant, went to the residence with four other officers and said they discovered the pot in brown paper hays, three large plastic bags, a cardboard box and a plastic container. A pistol also was confiscated, Dawson said. Held in lieu of $50,000 bond, set by Night Magistrate Mike O'Quinn, was Armando Tijerina, 28, of the 200 block of Kipling Avenue.
