Our Medicaid project in consultation with the International Coalition for Genital Integrity (ICGI) has been highly successful. Amber Craig and Rio Cruz presented the project’s findings in their talk entitled, “Stopping Wasteful Tax Funding for Circumcision” at the conference “Genital Integrity: A New Awareness” in Washington, D.C. on April 1, 2001. Our work has so far resulted in six more states—Arizona, Missouri, North Carolina, Montana, Utah, and most recently Florida—joining the six states which did not pay for Medicaid circumcisions as of January 1, 2001.
