    Yes, Tom Sullivan was speaking on this subject recently.

    Doctors having to inform on patients that are under care for any mental treatment including anxiety, stress, depression, etc. One caller mentioned problems with current laws such as HIPAA. Here is an excerpt from another website listing the legalities of such efforts:

    Medical Records

    In the past, physicians could physically secure and shield personal medical records from disclosure, absent consent from their patients. Electronic data-banks changed all that (as foretold by the Supreme Court in Whalen, above). Patchy and varied state laws involving doctor-patient confidentiality left much to be desired. With the passage of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) (which encouraged electronic transmission of patient data), Congress passed concurrent legislation for uniform protection of medical records and personal information. In December 2000, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published its Privacy Rule (65 Fed. Reg. 82462), which became effective on April 14, 2001.

    The regulation covers health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and healthcare providers that bill and transfer funds electronically. The regulation mandates a final compliance date of April 14, 2003 (small health plans have until April 14, 2004 to comply.) The Privacy Rule includes provisions for the following:

    •Ensuring patient access to medical records, ability to get copies and/or request amendments

    •Obtaining patient consent before releasing information. Health care providers are required to obtain consent before sharing information regarding treatment, payment, and health care operations Separate patient authorizations must be obtained for all non-routine disclosures and non-health related purposes. A history of all non-routine disclosures must be accessible to patients

    •Providing recourse for violations through an administrative complaint procedure

    No worries, with obamacare no one will be able to afford to go to the doctor.

    Lots of patient responsibility bills will keep you writing checks and off the trap field and just when you think you've got the sixteen bills paid for a minor diagnosis, open the mail box and you'll find ten more, seriously. You'll spend hours on the phone trying to find out what bill is what, so buy plenty of paper so you can list invoice numbers and match them to keep track.

    If you've got something serious, better go to office supply and buy several ledgers.

    Easier to just not go to the doctor and save a tree, make that a couple of trees.

    You don't have it if it's not diagnosed and it won't be in your record.

    Which is a good point about these so called 'nut cases'; it's heresay unless they have been properly diagnosed.

    So if say if Lanza, Holmes etc was not previously diagnosed by a professional, as mentally ill, he had nothing at all, no mental illness.

    So why blame the mentally ill? Then why are the politians legislating against the mentally ill when it was so called 'normal criminals at the time of the murders' that committed the crimes of murder?

    If criminal nutcases are properly diagnosed then they should not and could not have guns.

    And what if this involves a check up from the neck up for anyone who wants to own guns?

    Would the non college educated be automatically left off due to ignorance of the testing techniques?

    Would it be a crime to fib to your doctor?

    What if the doctor has a thing for your wife?
    And who decides what the critera for determining mental illness is?

    "If it is true, regarding the mental health portion of the Toomey-Manchin bill, Republicans and Democrats alike are enabling the Soviet-style act of linking health care to the restriction of liberty. Imagine when you visited a doctor five years ago for postpartum depression, they put you on a list of people too crazy to be trusted with a gun? This is right out of the Marxist playbook, my friend. They’ve already linked Veterans, people who are pro-life, and Tea Party activists who are pro-Constitution as being potential terrorist threats; and now, just visiting a therapist can put you on the wrong list, anonymously."
