Pg 765 Section 1711 Government will require Preventative Services including vaccines. (Choice?)
What it says:
1 Subtitle B—Prevention

21 ‘‘(B) vaccines recommended for use as appro

23 Control and Prevention; and
This claim is true, there is no way we can refuse vaccines if this bill is enacted, or to use the new word I learned to day, promulgated.

PG 58 Government will have real-time access to individuals’ finances & a National ID HealthCare Card will be issued!
(D) enable the real-time (or near real time) determination of an individual’s financial responsibility at the point of service
I believe this means the determination of your co-pay at the time of service which is no different than standard coverage systems now.
and, to the extent possible, prior to service, including whether the individual is eligible for a specific service with a specific physician at a specific facility,
I believe this means the standard verification of benefits just as is it currently done with private coverage.
which may include utilization of a machine-readable health plan beneficiary identification card;
A card like the one I currently carry in my wallet from my private provider.
I don't want this particular bill either. I don't want the government in my life anymore than they already are. However, it will not help us defeat it if all we have is fear on our side so I wish the people (not you guys) putting this stuff out would be reasonable and honest.
Keep up the good work but also keep in mind there are currently 5 different versions of this bill and we are only looking at one.
Sorry - couldn't figure out how to break my comments out of the quotes.
