Health care in the United States has come under intense scrutiny following the death of a woman who was allegedly poisoned by a multi-health system.
A day after the woman’s death, a new law was passed that would prohibit multi-systems and other similar entities from entering the US.
The new legislation, known as the Prevention of Healthcare Fraud and Abuse Act (PHFAA), came after a number of incidents involving multi-hospital systems that failed to disclose suspicious cases to health authorities.
The law has since been blocked by a federal judge.
The legislation passed by Congress in May would also force hospitals and other healthcare systems to collect data on patients’ health status, including their medical records, and submit the information to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
In addition, the bill would ban the use of billing codes, billing records, or other electronic data as an alternative to patient identification.
The PHFAA is one of several bills that have been introduced in recent years that would restrict the use and distribution of information about people with medical conditions, as well as require insurers to provide certain information about individuals to doctors.
“This bill does not create new or better health care options,” said Dr. Richard Anderson, a co-chair of Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) that pushed the PHFRA.
“The bill creates new requirements for health care providers to provide the information that would be required by the law.
This legislation is meant to force a number more providers to submit information to health officials, because they fear being accused of a health care fraud.
The bill does nothing to protect patients or prevent a healthcare fraud.”
A spokesperson for the Centers of Medicare and Medicare Services (Centers) told The Verge that the PHBAA was introduced in response to a number in the US healthcare system.
“A number of states have passed laws that mandate transparency in healthcare,” said a spokesperson.
“We will continue to review the PHFHAA and will consider its potential impact on the health care delivery system.”
However, many health advocates say the legislation is unnecessary and will ultimately create more problems for people.
“It’s like trying to regulate cigarettes,” said Rachel Rosenbaum, director of policy and litigation at the Center for Health Care Fraud and Injustice (CHFI).
“You’re basically forcing a lot of these companies to sell cigarettes in their stores, and that would create a lot more problems.”
Rosenbaum said that it would create an additional burden on patients who are uninsured, as the bill will require them to sign a form stating that they are covered by the PHFFAA.
This means that people will be able to buy cigarettes without signing a form and potentially not get reimbursed for the medicine they buy, Rosenbaum added.
“People are already paying $40-$60 per pack to get their medicine in their own home, so it’s a big increase,” Rosenbaum explained.
“So if you don’t sign that form, you’re essentially saying, ‘I have to pay $400 for the same medicine you’re buying.'”
Rosenbaum also noted that the bill is unlikely to solve the problem of billing fraud.
“They don’t need to be forced to have that information,” she said.
“What they’re asking for is for all health care professionals to be required to submit to a centralized database of all the billing codes that they have used and the amount of money that they’ve spent on those billing codes.
That’s not going to happen in a way that would stop billing fraud.”
The PHFH Act is still in the process of being debated in the House of Representatives.
