ACTION ALERT — Tell Your Senator to Stop National Patient ID!

Congress is deciding right now whether to fund a National Patient ID – a single, federally-issued number that links all your medical records together. This “Unique Patient Identifier” has been prohibited for more than 20 years due to concerns about patient privacy, personal autonomy and the national security risks associated with centralized databases of personal information. Click here to send the key decisionmakers and your U.S. Senators a message asking them NOT to fund a National Patient ID.

Protect Newborn Genetic Privacy Rights

Parents are permitted to refuse newborn genetic screening or to choose private newborn genetic screening. Notwithstanding any other state or federal law or regulation, prior to conducting newborn genetic screening, a health care facility or health care provider must receive the express, separate, written, voluntary, informed consent of the parents or guardian of a newborn child. A general consent permitting treatment signed by the parents or guardian at admission to a facility does not fulfill this requirement. This consent requirement cannot be waived for any reason.
