Beware of Turtles and Birds

(A Good Humor Video)

In a little-noticed speech on May 10 to the Iowa Republican Party in Cedar Rapids, Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul humorously chided President Obama’s signature health care overhaul, noting the 140,000 medical diagnostic codes doctors will have to use in order to inform the government about injuries sustained by Americans.

That’s 122,000 new codes, up from the previous 18,000.  Those codes, said Sen. Paul, a medical doctor himself, include line-items for ‘injuries sustained from a turtle,’ and ’walking into a lamppost.’

macawPaul has attracted attention in recent weeks for spending time in the Hawkeye State because it’s among the first states to weigh in during the 2016 Republican presidential primary season.

As a video of Paul’s remarks surfaced Monday on YouTube, news emerged that a CNN/Opinion Research poll showed 54 percent of Americans don’t support Obamacare.

You can catch the full 43-minute speech here.  Senator Paul begins at the 2:30 mark.

Doctors, medical billers, turtles and macaws are groaning everywhere.

    Want the rest of the story?
    Apparently Rand Paul has connected “ICD-10″ diagnosis coding requirements with ObamaCare. ICD-10 coding is an international standard that the government(and insurance companies?) has been trying to get implemented for years. Providers now use “ICD-9″ and most everyone in healthcare wants ICD-10 just about as much as consumers want to use the metric system for measurement! We DON’T want it. It will NOT improve care and will be a gigantic hassle for providers.
