What do you feel about tx being the 1st state to allow employers to have access to employee health records?

What do you feel about tx being the 1st state to allow employers to have access to employee health records?

My understanding...: Was that employers can get a list of employees and family - not identified by name, but by a code - whose health spending was greater than 15, 000. It also lists the diagnosis, amount paid, dates of service, prognoses and treatment plans. Personally, i'm not too comfortable with it... But the argument is if the employer is paying the medical bills, then they should have access to the info. ...Read more

If the affordable care act extends health insurance coverage to 30 million people, how will the current healthcare system be able to meet this demand?

If the affordable care act extends health insurance coverage to 30 million people, how will the current healthcare system be able to meet this demand?

Complex answer: Using the current system & increasing coverage will not work. The new system will have a large primary care base for prevention and early detection of chronic disease & a smaller base for specialist care for the really sick people. Not everyone needs a "cadillac" to maintain good health when a "chevy" or "a bus" can work. Personal responsibility and nauseating profits need to be discussed as well. ...Read more
