Obamacare: Intrusion of Privacy

Medical professionals are being put in a very difficult position beginning 2015 they will have to ask very intrusive personal questions in the “one click” record keeping system which Obamacare requires.  It won’t matter if you are going to see a doctor for a hangnail or a dermatologist for some wrinkle cream, they will be asking you among other things, how often you have sex, do you have one partner, several partners, same sex partner!   This article by Betsy McCaughy who has been writing about Obamacare spells it out:

‘Are you sexually active? If so, with one partner, multiple partners or same-sex partners?”

Be ready to answer those questions and more the next time you go to the doctor, whether it’s the dermatologist or the cardiologist and no matter if the questions are unrelated to why you’re seeking medical help. And you can thank the Obama health law.

“This is nasty business,” says New York cardiologist Dr. Adam Budzikowski. He called the sex questions “insensitive, stupid and very intrusive.” He couldn’t think of an occasion when a cardiologist would need such information — but he knows he’ll be pushed to ask for it.

The president’s “reforms” aim to turn doctors into government agents, pressuring them financially to ask questions they consider inappropriate and unnecessary, and to violate their Hippocratic Oath to keep patients’ records confidential.  MORE

The article does point out that the NRA managed to force the government to NOT be able to ask if you own a firearm, but it has been noted that many doctors are asking that now and it’s none of their business.  My question is what happens if you refuse to answer a question or it is found that you lied about an answer.  Will the government then begin to cut off your benefits?  I and many others tried to warn you that the behemoth of Universal Healthcare was going to be the apex of Big Brother controlling your life, and it is coming to pass.  Just what will someone from the government do with your information? Could it be used to blackmail and outspoken opponent?  Could it be used to destroy your family, take your children from you, be subpoenaed for divorce record disclosure?
