The controversy over Obamacare is far from over. With that in mind, Twila joined Jim to give listeners an update that looks at the following:
–Obamacare and the continued funding of abortion.
–House Resolution-5214. This legislation requires Health and Human Services to
make recommendations about developing and using clinical data registries to
allegedly improve patient care. These recommendations are then supposed to be
posted to their website. This bill is saying that they want the federal
government to standardize the clinical data registries to make them more useful
as the government moves toward a national medical records system.
–Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute This is basically what Obamacare
will use to ration health care They will access all of your data via the Health
Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information
Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH). Twila noted that

million patients. They plan on doing comparative effectiveness research which
looks at different treatments so that they can come up with what they feel are
the best and most cost-effective treatments. This will make it difficult for
you to obtain treatment that doesn’t fit their protocol.
–A Minnesota insurance company leaves the Obamacare exchange. Could this signal
the start of serious erosion for the Obamacare program?
–Healthcare.gov still has security issues and allegedly was never built on a
–Why major news networks seem to be ignoring big stories related to Obamacare.
