re: When A Flawed EHR Threatens Patients
The national health insurance data base that is often used is not under HIPPAA so errors can't get corrected. Due to blatant and on-going theft inside many govt health plans claims processors, often the theft is facilitated by altering the diagnosis codes on the claims to circumvent the claim being referred to the liable party, such as approved workers comp, etc. Insiders estimate that the total theft to medicare is over a trillion and is $4 million and rising on my claims alone as one claim, that is theft since their are two primary payers ahead of medicare, is turned into 17 and the monies pocketed according to 500 named witnesses who have reported this but their contractor who is financially interlocked with the thieves won't forward the reports in violation of their federal contracts. US Dept of labor has accepted the complaint against Medicare coordination of Benefits for altering the official info from US dept of labor bi weekly but so far they haven't been stopped. Their is almost a monopoly claims processing company in the USA for Medicare and they also process another federal and state plans. This is where the alteration of codes takes place. Then when one ends up in an emergency room or sees a doctor that tries to rely on the national data base for info terrible medical errors can occur. it happened to me twice. Instead of suing the doctor or hospital; investigation led to the problem. Until Congress allows internal audits of and criminal investigations and prosecutions of govt contractors again; we are all at risk as govt contractors will be regulating all our health plans as of 2014. the criminal investigators assigned can't do anything until Congress permits it. The total theft to medicare is about the amount of the budget cuts to the doctors pay. This started in 1994 when the Secreatary of HHS Donna Shalala suspended the enforcement of conditional payments under Medicare and set up a system of contracts with employers and agencies to post the official employment status and insurance to the Medicare computer owned by Group Health's subsidiary, MCOB. No one is to alter that posting but the company with some legal change. Immendiately, the insurance liability industry and any other primary payers, etc. began faxing and calling to change the offiical records. Three medciare judges have ruled ta the offiical posting on me is accurate after the Hearing judge got the internal documents and verified them. This exposed a theft of a million dollars that was to be put in trust for my permanent medcial care at office of personnel management whose contractor controls the federal employee health plans ( they will be in charge of all in 2014.) This is where the million seems to have disappeared and the federal investigators are stopped from investigating. ACS employee misread the computer coding and told the only oxygen supplier in my area that I had a million dollars given to me to pay them direct. I have nothing but a death panel order : Let her die. and don't pst my file or pay bills ACS from a convicted criminal in the Jack Abramoff bribery scandal. Although approved for life by all three health plans. our son hauls tanks and we pay to fill them or I would be dead as ordered. Changes have to be made in the new health care so the govt contractors in charge of our right to live are accountable to the laws and constitution. The first appeals are done by the contractor and often aren't answered; and they are limited so addressing constitutional issues isn't available. patients are liable for the stolen monies even though its beyond their control to stop it. since 2005, Social Security was to be able to issue those letters of waiver by agreement with CMS; SSA has never implemented it and my request goes unanswered and files, now in custody of Affiliated Computer Services has disappeared numerous times. They don't want their illegal activities reviewed? Even Lynn Blodgett, CEO personally lied to Christina Stark the Us Dept of Labor workers comp regional manager that she was accessing my entire owcp file when even files and orders coming from appellate judges have disappeared inside their company and never posted. Recently, I had to send in yearly expenses. All but the Oxygen bills were processed on an offline system and said some third party should pay, etc. But the oxygen bills disappeared along with a decade of them never responded to from me or any of the oxygen suppliers I have had. HHS Civil rights complaints have disappeared also from the Dallas regional office without any response except the post office certified mail receipt. The manager called and bamblasted me for exposing the on- going corruption when I first filed over three years ago against several parties. ( not my doctors) HIPPAA complaints don't help as govt contractors aren't subject to them. Linda Joy Adams with files and monies missing in 5 agencies under ACS control.
