Government wants doctors paid for “value.” On July 1, Politico held a briefing called “Value vs. Volume.” Data-crunchers, in cahoots with government, say access to our private medical data can be used to pay doctors for “value,” instead of for the services they provide to patients.
Government Health Powers
Know the facts. Know your rights.
ST. PAUL, Minn.—Today’s critical decision in the U.S. District Court of Appeals in favor of the plaintiffs in Halbig vs. Burwell is the beginning of the end for Obamacare, says one health care expert and patient advocate.
Outsiders want to tie your doctor’s hands using data. A new report says health care price transparency is urgently needed to reduce health care spending. Their intention seems good, however, the data is primarily for employers, doctors, health plans and policymakers to use to restrict your health care access and choice.
Speak Out Against the Government’s Biosurveillance Plan for Warehousing Americans’ Health Information
It seems that every American is trackable in today’s hyper-technical society—via our cell phones and tablets, by purchases we make and through web sites we visit.
But the government is planning a new way to keep tabs on all Americans—through a sneaky biosurveillance plan that will track American’s health records.
We’ve all heard talk of NSA surveillance, but there’s another surveillance that aims to track American’s health records. Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF, www.cchfreedom.org) is alerting Americans about the Obama Administration’s frightening biosurveillance (BSV) initiative, which would gather and analyze detailed health information that should be private and protected.
Will your doctor be blacklisted? There are 23 words in Obamacare that haven’t gotten much attention -- but should scare every doctor and every patient.
I recently stumbled upon two alarming intertwined initiatives. One is “One Health,” described in more detail later. The other is published by the Obama Administration. Called the National Strategy for Biosurviellance, it specifically states,
“A well-integrated, national biosurveillance enterprise is a national security imperative.”
The Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF, www.cchfreedom.org) released the following statement after the Minnesota State Senate voted yesterday to repeal genetic privacy for newborns and allow the state to collect and store newborn DNA without parental consent. The vote was on bill S.F. 2047, the Newborn Screening Program Modification.
Now that the Obamacare enrollment deadline has come and gone, cheerleaders for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are calling the initiative a success, boasting 8 million signups since enrollment began in October.
But one patient advocacy group says Obamacare has succeeded only in creating a new Medicaid for the middle class.
