“People won’t sign up voluntarily”

Published on

Senator Calderon’s response in the Whittier Daily News to our requested amendments to SB 1096 says it all.

We said that consumers must be asked and agree before their private medical records, including what prescription drugs they take, are traded, sold, shared or transferred.

Calderon’s response:

"It would make the bill meaningless. It’s been demonstrated that people won’t sign up voluntarily."

That should tell you something, Senator.  Of course, the backers of Calderon’s bill — including pharmacy chains and prescription drug manufacutrers — do want to give a patient the opportunity to refuse.
