Remember the concern about showing your health insurance

card when getting the COVID-19 vaccination? Some people didn't understand why they had to do that. "I thought it was free," they said. I understood fully when I went for my annual physical a couple of weeks after getting the second vaccination. My Medicare Advantage plan had reported my vaccination directly to my clinic and doctor. As soon as he came into the exam room he said, "I see you got your Covid shots! Excellent."

It was all in my health care records. The vaccination center reported it to my insurance company, which knows who my primary care physician and clinic are.

It wasn't about who pays. It was about medical records. Sometimes it's good when healthcare information is shared.

1. I didn't have to show my insurance card, but was asked to show my CDL (you know, picture ID).

2. While the state does have a vaccinations DB accessible by healthcare providers, the vaccination info is communicated by the Pharmacy (or etc.) that administered the vaccination, not one's insurance company.

3. How does MineralOilMan not know this?

I remember when Obama, his whacky Surgeon General, and the CEO of General Electric wanted a list of our guns to be a part of our medical-records... amidst a push to declare 'gun violence' as a 'health risk'.

So no, MM.  Sharing our healthcare-information is NEVER a good thing.

Once again, these individuals have no problem being totalitarians or handing their private info over to other totalitarians. Further evidence that liberalism is a mental disease.
