Our best look at what the total cost for reassignment in the U.S. comes from the Philadelphia Center for Transgender Surgery.Their package deal for a bevy of reassignment procedures for a candidate going from male to female is $140,450. Their package covering female-to-male transition is $124,400. That estimate, however, doesn’t factor in a lifetime supply of HRT, the cost of travel to a chosen clinic, lost work days, and other expenses.
