WASHINGTON (www.incnow.tv) -- According to an article in the Washington Examiner, a new ruling was issued last week that requires state, federal and local agencies, along with health insurers, to swap protected personal health information of anyone who is applying to join the new national health care program.
Personal health information is protected under federal law. The Washington Examiner says that the Department of Health and Human Services ruling will allow agencies to trade personal health information to verify that Obamacare applicants are getting the minimum amount of health insurance coverage.
Officials contacted by the Washington Examiner, said the exchange of information is meant to help determine the best coverage for each Obamacare user.
