Twila Brase is  president and co-founder of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom, a national patient-centered, privacy-focused, free-market policy organization to support health care choices, individualized patient care and medical and genetic privacy.  Twila is a certified public health nurse and author of the eight-time award-winning book, Big Brother in the Exam Room: The Dangerous Truth About Electronic Health Records.  She’s the speaker on the daily Health Freedom Minute heard on radio stations across the nation.

14 years ago this past Saturday, the so-called Affordable Care Act was signed into law by President Obama.  Jim shared the opening of a press release that went out last Friday from the Biden-Harris campaign.  It communicated that the ACA provides millions of Americans with the freedom and security for people to live life the way they want without the fear that one accident or illness will bankrupt them or their families.

Twila agrees this was a very consequential law but she believes it didn’t improve freedom or security.  It gave us unaffordable premiums and deductibles and no other options.  So from her perspective, there’s nothing affordable about it and the price for care itself is not any lower.  The high prices are at every level from care to coverage and in addition, the health plan is allowed to deny you access to care.  For Twila, it all fits the agenda of moving us toward a national health care system.

Join Jim and Twila as they look at more including:

  • Has this situation pushed medical professionals into early retirement?
  • How secure is everyone’s medical information?
  • What do we know about the cyber attack that took place last month on Change Healthcare?
  • Medical news out of Iowa and Minnesota. 
  • Are there security concerns surrounding the submitting of DNA samples when trying to research your ancestors?
  • The deliberate deception known as HIPAA. 
  • Is it true that some states have been secretly retaining blood samples from newborns?
