“The largest consolidation of personal data in the history of the republic.” ~ USA Today
Recently, the Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom posted an extremely useful chart titled “The Obamacare Hub – Transfer of Data and Dollars.” The chart outlines the flow of data collected by the government under Obamacare. It explains that the Obamacare Hub process begins when a person or employer enters private data into Exchange, the state website portal, in his or her state. This information includes all the data needed for a person’s identity to be stolen, such as tax information, income, employment, patient medical records, social security number, welfare information, family size, and demographic data.
Once this incredibly personal information is entered into the Exchange, it is sent to the central server, the Federal Data Services Hub (the Hub), and other state data sources (e.g., Medicaid). Next, the Hub connects with other federal agencies in order to transfer and validate everyone’s data, as shown below.
CCHF’s chart below shows how Obamacare will establish a central exchange for private information about every American citizen. Unfortunately, this information is subject to security breaches by computer hackers: in 2012, the RAND Corporation reported that the federal government could be losing up to $98 Billion annually to Medicare and Medicaid fraud—largely because of theft due to personal information being taken from government databases. Moreover, in light of recent events, especially the IRS scandal, do you really trust the government not to abuse your sensitive information?
