Call The Ambulance

That HIPAA thingy cuts both ways...

Jaramillo said he plans to sue the city as an entity, and the mayor and councilors individually on grounds violating the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act by divulging unpaid ambulance bills, infringing upon his freedom of speech and retaliation for whistleblowing...

Documentation shows Jaramillo divulged his ambulance bills himself at a council meeting, Bhasker said.


Self-immolation is one thing, but flaming out like this is amazing. I think he had better get a new lawyer, because from the looks of things, his current one is not serving him very well.

WOW, you sound like a hysterical who who loves government control and attorneys who sue. I think people like you and Hilary are the ones who are putting taking health care in the garbage! Soon we will have a social system where people will die waiting for a simple prodecure! Then no one can sue, because all health care will be a government program. So the the man sueing about the ambulance should't have to pay his bill, right? I bet you don't pay for groceries when you go to the store, or for eating out? No one wants to pay physicians or for health care, thanks for making a
3rd world health care system.

No, my friend. You have competely missed the point. I was ridiculing his attorney and him.
I am not a big fan of Hillary, but you clearly have some sort of obsession with her.
By the way, our preventable mortality rate in the US is 19th in the world.
Number one? The evil socialist France, who pay around half per capita and have by the numbers the best healthcare in the world.
So three stikes--- I am not very pro-lawyer, I am not connected to Hillary, and I don't get my information on important issues from Rush Limbaugh or Free Republic.
If I were prone to spout such idoicy as you seem to, I would post as anonymous too.
Thanks for your input, idiot.
