    It is why those signing up through the exchanges are either Medicaid or have chronic health issues with no other options. Both categories are willing to "take a chance".

    I like how it was basically "news to her". It was written all over her face regarding the HIPAA compliance. As a transcriptionist I can tell you they ride us HARD on that stuff. We can't even type anything on our own secure computers - it all has to remain on their server/software that we have to log into to then type. No copying and pasting, no printing, etc. If you were to look at your electronic file you'd see all your billing into - address, SS#, credit card number on file if any, check numbers used, bank, etc. Also, without the safety of privacy, anyone can go in and access someone's file - spouse, famous person, boss, etc - and get their private health info and release it or use it for blackmail, etc.

    Think about how many psych records would be included in this - including notes from sessions.

    And somehow, people want this in the hands of government with no security attached? Good call.

    It is a little known provision of HIPPA that doctor's must have enhanced security on their email before sending patient information. Failure to do so can generate fines of thousands of dollars. But the govt REQUIRES BY LAW that citizens risk compromising not only their personal health info, but their SS# and other personal info on a website with little to no security at all.

    We are moving toward an imperial govt. which hands down laws that we serfs must follow while they live by their own set of rules. They further violate the Constitution by unequal enforcement of the laws, selectively enforcing or waiving laws to aid their favored groups.

    Whoever is willing to put their personal information on this website better budget an extra $150 a year for a subscription to LifeLock.
