Federal ‘Biosurveillance’ Plan Seeking Direct Access to Americans’ Private Medical Records

Yes, That’s Right, The Fed’s want access to YOUR medical records.

“The Obama administration in the [American] Recovery and Reinvestment Act [of 2009] forces every doctor to have interoperable electronic
medical records by January 1, 2015 or face penalties from Medicare, financial reductions in their payments. So that’s one thing that’s
happening,” she told CNSNews.com.

“A second thing that’s happening is that the federal government has been funding the creation of state health information exchanges (HIEs) with
the purpose of creating a national health information network. And they’re interoperable, which means they’re accessible to government and others,
because they have to follow certain protocols and data standards that the government sets. So that’s another thing that’s happening.

“And the third thing that’s happening is that the health plans often require, may require with their contracts with doctors, that they submit
their bills electronically. So all this is forcing everybody’s medical records online,” she explained.

“It’s not clear exactly how the federal government plans to get access” to these online records, Brase said, but it could include requiring
health insurers to send all claims data to the government, forcing state insurance exchanges to open a special portal specifically for federal
bureaucrats, or demanding that hospitals and clinics report directly to the feds.

Why, You Ask,,, Because You’re All Carrier’s of the flu or a terrorist anthrax and They Want To Know About You!
Now I ask you, Do any of you Believe this and Do any of you think the Government can keep your Medical Records Secure?
No Likely on both accounts.

The federal government is piecing together a sweeping national “biosurveillance” system that will give bureaucrats near real-time access
to Americans’ private medical information in the name of national security, according to Twila Brase, a public health nurse and co-founder of the
Citizens Council for Health Freedom.
The Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response is currently seeking public
comment on a 52-page draft of the proposed “National Health Security Strategy 2015-2018” (NHSS).

But Brase warns that the NHSS proposal would allow the federal government to monitor an individual’s behavior before, during and after any
government-defined health “incident” – which could be anything from a local outbreak of the flu to a terrorist anthrax attack.

“It’s very broad. It doesn’t seem to have any limits, except they say something about, you know, properly protecting the data. But from our
perspective, if the government gets access to this kind of data, [and] is allowed to do research with the data…then our privacy has already been
compromised. The government has already said that our data is their data for their purposes of national health security,” Brase told

When did any of us become Property of Our Government?
