How Obamacare Will Destroy Our Privacy

How Obamacare Will Destroy Our Privacy

When the ACA’s (Obamacare’s) health insurance exchanges open, everyone’s data –––– Social Security number, bank information, and  tax records will be exposed to criminals and hackers, tbecause of serious vulnerabilities in the system.

Scheduled to open on October 1, The exchanges are filled with a long list  implementation failures that keep growing, threatening the security of the public’s vital private data .

1: The Obamacare “Navigators”
These are people and organizations that are being put in place to  facilitate recruitment of people, especially the young and healthy, for Obamacare’s insurance exchanges.

• Many of the navigators are former Acorn members

• HHS won’t require navigators to submit to even minimum eligibility criteria and background checks. The Administration’s training program don’t ask navigators to participate in anti-fraud classes. Many states don’t methods for investigating unscrupulous navigators who could prey on the vulnerable and unsuspecting public. Some of these navigators could gain access to applicants’ Social Security numbers, bank accounts, and other personal information.

2: ACA’s Data Hub
The data hub is an enormous compilation of tax filings, Social Security reports, and other government data that could be used to determine eligibility for subsidized insurance.

• The hub won’t be scheduled for certification as secure until September 30—one day before the exchanges are to begin operation

•Cutting Corners: The Administration has been slipshod on data privacy for the exchanges.Thus, can the data on the hub actually be certified as secure—or will Obamacare open public’s tax and other personal information at risk to a slew of miscreants?.

The Obama Administration’s shoddy, sloppy approach to Obamacare implementation is placing our sensitive personal data at risk. It’s another urgent reason why Congress should refuse to fund this egregious law.
