Eww, the comments are all terrible.

The comments made me mad but now I think about it, I see where the commenters are coming from. They all think cross-sex hormones actually treat trans people's mental health problems. Health insurance absolutely should cover mental health treatment.

The information the commenters are missing is that cross-sex hormones and trans surgeries are utterly ineffective mental health interventions. Most of us here know this. The OP of that post knows it too, or intuits it or has heard TIMs talking about 'titty skittles' or has had suicide threats used as a manipulation tactic on them before - they've got a better bullshit detector than the commenters. I really doubt the OP would have posted a similar rant against antidepressants, but most of the comments are reacting as if they had.
