Hidden Source Code In ObamaCare EVERY American Should Know About.
Republican Joe Barton, a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, grilled Cheryl Campbell, Senior Vice President of CGI Federal. This is the company that built the Obama Care Health Insurance Exchange Website.
Barton questioned Campbell on hidden language in the source code on the site that says applicants have “no reasonable expectation of privacy.”
Barton showed Campbell an image of the website coding that included this warning, and she confirmed that she knew it was there. However, she insisted that in developing the site the way it did, her company was simply following “a set of rules and regulations” sent out under their contract by the centers for Medicare and Medicaid services.
“This is the part of the sign-up that is hidden,” said Barton. “The applicant does not see this, but it is in the source code, and what the blue highlighted area that’s been circled in red says is: ‘You have no reasonable expectation of privacy regarding any communication or data transmitting or stored on this information system.'”
The HIPPA privacy rule “establishes national standards to protect individuals medical records and other personal health information and applies to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those healthcare providers that conduct certain healthcare transactions electronically.” Barton said, “If that is designed to protect the patient’s privacy, and this explicitly says in order to continue, you have to accept this condition that you have no privacy, or no reasonable expectation of privacy.”
