Health Care Surveillance:  HIPAA—The Grand Deception

Part 1 in a Series on How Private Health Information is No Longer Private

ST. PAUL, Minn.— Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom(CCHF, www.cchfreedom.org) wants Americans to know of yet another government intrusion into their private health information.

It’s the HIPAA privacy rule—and there’s a grand deception behind it.

HIPAA Privacy Notice - Why are you asked to sign a form?

HIPAA Privacy Notice - Why are you asked to sign a form?

Here is what HHS says about signing:

The Obamacare Surveillance System

The Obamacare Surveillance System

There is an Obamacare surveillance system. Surveillance is national news today...except in health care. That needs to change. The National Security Administration (NSA) is not the only agency spying on citizens without their consent or knowledge. And the problem is going to get worse under the federal reform law, empowering the IRS in ways we've never seen before.

Without Consent - "Genetic Grab" List from MDH

Without Consent - 'Genetic Grab' List from MDH

Four months into the legislative session, and after many requests, the Minnesota Department of Health has provided the state legislature with a list of all the genetic information (biological specimens and health data) that they have been collecting, using, storing and disseminating without legislative authority or individual written consent -- as required by the Minnesota Genetic Privacy Act (M.S. 13.386). The list was provided shortly before a floor vote on April 18 to give MDH retrospective legal protection against MGPA violation lawsuits as well as prospective authority to collect, store, use and share any and all genetic information on individuals without the individual's consent, long into the future.

The FIRST PAGE includes data that the statutes allow. The SECOND AND THIRD page is DNA and data they've collected and used by making up their own rules. There may be a statute listed, but it doesn't give them express authority to do what they've been doing in violation of the law. HF 695 and SF 745 will protect them from lawsuits forever...and give MDH ownership claims to the DNA of citizens. PETITION: http://bit.ly/SayNoDNABiobank
