An Odd Tidbit From ABC

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Fenian_Bastard, Apr 19, 2007.

  1. "Some news accounts have suggested that Cho had a history of antidepressant use, but senior federal officials tell ABC News that they can find no record of such medication in the government's files. This does not completely rule out prescription drug use, including samples from a physician, drugs obtained through illegal Internet sources, or a gap in the federal database, but the sources say theirs is a reasonably complete search."

    Excuse me?
    What "federal database" are we talking about here?
    A federal database that contains all prescription drug purchases, by anyone, for anything?
    And how and why was that information obtained? Who has access to it, and for what purposes?

    Medical Information Bureau?

    Yep. MIB. Insurance companies use it for underwriting. It's how they know a person who just had a heart attack isn't taking out a 1,000,000 policy.

    Don't mess with the MIB:

  5. Well-played, H2.

    However, it's not the MIB. It's this thing.

    A law that, to nobody's surprise, is being used in contravention to it soriginal intent by the lawless folk who are running the country.
