HHS Secretary Becerra: ‘Absolutely the government’s business’ to know which Americans haven’t been vaccinated

Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said Thursday it was “absolutely the government’s business” to know which Americans haven’t been vaccinated yet against the coronavirus.

Responding to GOP criticisms of the Biden administration’s planned “door-to-door” campaign to encourage unvaccinated Americans to inoculate themselves, Becerra told CNN the government has had to “spend trillions of dollars to try to keep Americans alive during this pandemic.”

“So it is absolutely the government’s business, it is taxpayers’ business, if we have to continue to spend money to try to keep people from contracting COVID and helping reopen the economy,” he said.

Tsk Tsk Tsk.

Someone should maybe inform this fucking assclown about something called HIPAA, yes?

Your Medical Records

Health care professional and medical filesThis guidance remains in effect only to the extent that it is consistent with the court’s order in Ciox Health, LLC v. Azar, No. 18-cv-0040 (D.D.C. January 23, 2020), which may be found at https://ecf.dcd.uscourts.gov/cgi-bin/show_public_doc?2018cv0040-51. More information about the order is available at https://www.hhs.gov/hipaa/court-order-right-of-access/index.html. Any provision within this guidance that has been vacated by the Ciox Health decision is rescinded.

The Privacy Rule gives you, with few exceptions, the right to inspect, review, and receive a copy of your medical records and billing records that are held by health plans and health care providers covered by the Privacy Rule.

Access

Only you or your personal representative has the right to access your records.

A health care provider or health plan may send copies of your records to another provider or health plan only as needed for treatment or payment or with your permission. 

The Privacy Rule does not require the health care provider or health plan to share information with other providers or plans.

HIPAA gives you important rights to access – PDF your medical record and to keep your information private.

Oh but he has been misquoted and his remarks taken out of context he sez.

“Some comments I made today are being taken wildly out of context. To be clear: government has no database tracking who is vaccinated. We’re encouraging people to step up to protect themselves, others by getting vaccinated. It’s the best way to save lives and end this pandemic,” he wrote.

Yeah Fuck You Becerra, we know EXACTLY what you are trying to say and you can kiss our collective asses.

Of course he has to back track and admit that no one is required to even answer the fucking door when these willing minions come a knocking to ask if you have been stupid enough to take The Jab.

Becerra said people didn’t have to answer the door but he hoped they would so officials could dispel rumors about the vaccine, which has proven to be highly effective in driving down cases, hospitalizations and deaths.

Funny that eh Comrade?

“Dispel the rumors?

Petty fucking tyrant.

He knows damn good and well he is full of shit but is trying to bluff, very poorly I might add.

They aren’t rumors.

Thousands and thousand of people have either been maimed or have died as a result of the side effects of that shit.

He will have to excuse me if I am not a willing participant in a government backed game of Russian Roulette.

Becerra is a California Commie bastard who used to be the California Attorney General and tried to sue Trump OVER 100 TIMES while still in that position.

That picture right there should tell you all you need to know about that piece of shit.

  1. HIPPA applies ONLY to people who have access to your healthcare information as a part of their job. That includes people who provide care, people who perform billing for care, people at insurers who reimburse for care etc. HIPAA does NOT apply under any other circumstances. It is perfectly legal for a private person, a NON healthcare related business or a ..Gov employee to ASK you health related questions. Of course your are NOT required to answer said questions…..at least not yet. I have no doubt laws will eventually be passed requiring people to answer such questions…but they aren on the books yet.

  2. HIPPA came about when AIDS was an issue….to protect the privacy of gay men and all that (and those poor folks, like Ryan White, who got it though blood transfusons and such).
    Now we get to use it. It is a crime to disclose anyone’s medical status, to anyone else, without their permission. Period. So telling someone =, like a government worker, about your medical status (vaccination record) without your permission is a violation of HIPPA.
    I foresee lawsuits coming. I know that if someone comes to my door and knows I am not avaccinated, then the agency for whom they work is gonna be sued for Hippa violations. Plus, if they don’t leave when ordered to (And I will vido tha interacton via cell phone) then they are gonna get charged with Trespass.

    • In California, an attorney general is required by the state’s constitution to be a licensed attorney to hold office. Becerra hadn’t been for 26 years when Moonbeam appointed him. He was sued because of this and a superior court judge tied himself into knots with his reasoning in order to throw the case out.

      Becerra was unqualified for the job then just as he’s unqualified for the job now.
      And don’t even get me started with his relationship with the Pakistani IT spies, the Awan brothers.
      Becerra belongs in prison, not the cabinet.

    I just may answer the door after all.

    It would be Positive for US or Others to be able to Read about The Visit from The American Stasi. Understand the visit Fully.

    Consider it.
    I am.

    Off and On Topic-something i havent seen much talk about.

    There WILL BE, people that need Help ….in the future.
    Most of us are just gonna be…more like a resistence, helping quietly, hidden living with the evil.
    Very few will actually be…Working the Problems.

    Again, consider it.

  4. It’s HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) — two A’s, one P.

    And yes, it’s relevant to getting your arguments taken seriously when you’re dealing with people who will use any excuse to shut you up.

  6. All you guys claiming “muh privacy” and shit. Don’t know shit. Wife unit had to learn that crap for her job. Front to back. What the lawyer teaching them explained “what you get in one place can be taken away in another”. Gov can do things per this law that no one understands. Like gov can share your info with anyone they want. They made it illegal for your local provider to share it (including to your own family), but big gov? Nope, they can give it to anyone deemed “necessary”. Like a university research group, a private foundation research group, any gov group, any corporation including insurance companies (NOT health insurance, but LIFE insurance). In other words anybody they want AND your medical records must be computerized and connected to the net. Little gotcha here. Any provider must have all medicare patients computerized and connected to the net. What doctor does not take medicare. How many are willing to run 2 separate medical record systems (huge expense). Risk of placing a medicare record into the wrong MR system? Huge fine. Your records are at gov finger tips 24 hours a day. Think they are not accessing them? Latest use- checking drug scripts for patients going to multiple doctors seeking pain meds. Watching doctors that prescribe too many pain meds. Even my former area of expertise (flying), FAA found out a guy lied on his flight physical, Had several diagnosed problems he did not tell the fight doc about. Got him for lying on gov records after he had a landing accident. How did the FAA know? That lawyer was right when he said never read a contract yourself. They give you what you want in big print up front. They take it away in little print in the back -after a shit ton of worthless crap – in the middle.
