  •  HIPPA? What a sick joke. (0+ / 0-)

    Just the existence of a database of HIV+ folks is already a violation of HIPPA. Who has access to it? How are the names compiled?
    There is no confidentiality to HIV testing if every Positive has to be reported. Just the same as drug testing, certain drugs get flagged, regardless of whether they are prescribed or illicit. And there's nothing you can do about false positives.
    And insurance companies have full access to your health records that doctors can't share with other healthcare professionals without your written permission.
    HIPPA was a good thing when Clinton signed it, but the Bushies blew holes in it as soon as they got in, now it's liability.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
