So here is the proof RFIDs will be used. I have not heard of the method they plan to get them implanted and truthfully don't see Americans lined up to get their "chip". What is NOT clear is what they will end up using this chip for. It clearly states several different uses "and any other data"deemed appropriate by the Secretary"
Sec. 2521, P. 1000 – The govt. will establish a National Medical Device Registry. H.R. 3200 [Healthcare Bill], pages 1001-1008:
(g)(1) The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the ‘registry’) to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that— ‘‘(A) is or has been used in or on a patient; ‘‘(B) and is— ‘‘(I) a class III device; or ‘‘(ii) a class II device that is implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining.”
Page 104 defines data in paragraph 1
Section B National Medical Device Registry from H.R. 3200 [Healthcare Bill], pages 1001-1008:
Approved by the FDA, a class II implantable device is an “implantable radio frequency transponder system for patient identification and health information.” The purpose of a class II device is to collect data in medical patients such as “claims data, patient survey data, standardized analytic files that allow for the pooling and analysis of data from disparate data environments, electronic health records, and any other data deemed appropriate by the Secretary.”
Pages 1001-1008 “National Medical Device Registry” section.
Page 1006 “to be enacted within 36 months upon passage”

That's messed up. This is only one thing in the multitude of things I dislike about this sham of a bill.
