Obamacare adds 122,000 diagnostic codes to medical bureaucracy...

Rand Paul claims Obamacare will include diagnostic codes for injuries sustained from a turtle, walking into a lamppost and burning water skis

In a little-noticed speech to the Iowa Republican Party this month, Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul mocked President Obama's signature health care overhaul, noting the 122,000 new medical diagnostic codes doctors will have to use in order to inform the government about injuries sustained by Americans.
Those codes, said Sen. Paul, a medical doctor himself, include line-items for 'injuries sustained from a turtle,' 'walking into a lamppost' and 'injuries sustained from burning water skis.'
Paul has attracted attention in recent weeks for spending time in the Hawkeye State, because it' will be 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.



SLOW AND STEADY: Obamacare regulations contain two separate doctor diagnosis codes for injuries sustained from turtles. Were you bitten, or did you collide with this slow creature? Uncle Sam wants to know

Ban turtles and light posts! Problem solved. Keep the burning water skis, though!

You only laugh because you’ve never been bitten by a turtle after walking into a lamp post from bailing off your burning jet ski. Let that happen and you’ll rue the day.

It was burning water skis. Thanks for adding the "burning jet ski" diagnostic code to the mix, though!

I wonder if they can hook a computer up to you and have it read diagnostic codes like your car? It's coming up Lamp bro, just lie down we'll take real good care of you.

Congrats to Mr. Paul on finding the funniest of the 122,000 new codes. I applaud his presidential campaign staff, ahem... staff on their thorough work.

I’m willing to bet that with 122,000 new diagnostic codes “burning jet ski” has to be in there somewhere.

No doubt.

I'm not in the business, but couldn't a lot of these be generalized with an attached notation at the end? Injury sustained from animal (turtle/dog/horse/flamingo). Water sport accident (jet ski/boat/fire). Blunt force trauma (rock, hammer, fall, fight)

Honest question. I don't know shit about coding. It just seems every job, mine included, seems to be getting more difficult.

If the code isn't predefined and accounted for at the beginning, automated statistics and analysis become difficult because a human would have to make sure the attached notations are consistently worded and spelled.

It makes more sense to try to cover every possible contingency from the beginning.
