The University of California, Berkeley is adding two more options to the “transgender student services” covered under its student insurance plan: laser hair removal and “fertility preservation.”

The public university receives around $500 million in federal funding annually, which makes up about 19 percent of UC Berkeley’s total revenue, according to a Bloomberg report. Students are automatically enrolled in and charged for Berkeley’s insurance plan, which costs $1,415 per semester, unless they successfully apply for a waiver.
