Health Care Reform - HB 3200

This summary is from the Liberty Counsel.
  • Section 113 mandates a government audit of the books of all employers that self-insure in order to "ensure that the law does not provide incentives for small and mid-size employers to self-insure."
  • Section 123 there will be a government committee deciding what treatments and benefits you get.
  • Section 152 Health Care will be provided to all non-US citizens.
  • Section 201 Government is creating an HC Exchange to bring private plans under government control.
  • Section 205 The government will use groups (i.e. Acorn & AmeriCorps) to "inform and educate" (sign up) individuals for government plan.
  • Section 225 The government will tell you what you can make (doctors). "The secretary shall provide for the annual participation of physicians under the public health insurance option, for which payment may be made for services furnished during the year."
  • Section 59B Any nonresident alien is exempt from individual taxes.
  • Section 441 "The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as tax."
  • Section 1151 The government will penalize hospitals for what government deems preventable readmissions.
  • Section 1162 The government mandates establishment of outcome-based measures. (rationing)
  • Section 1233 The government provides approved list of end-of-life resources, guiding you in death.
  • Section 1233 The government will decide what level of treatment you will have at end of life, according to preset methods.
  • Section 1308 The government will cover Mental Health Services including defining, creating and rationing those services.
  • Section 1441 The government will define "New Quality" measures in Health Care.

There is much more in HB 3200. But these brief statements should be sufficient to warrant a lot of concern and motivation to contact your Representatives and Senators to ask that they not support this bill.
