Mandatory Social Security Reporting HELPSubmitted by mvsiii on Mon, 12/10/2012 - 20:20
I just received a letter from my insurance company asking me to comply with a new Federal mandate. They state they are required to obtain social security numbers for my spouse and dependents! In my opinion, this seems to be a huge violation of my right to privacy, lining up with the unconstitutional federal overreach into the healthcare industry.
I do not wish to comply. I am sick of the Fed's overreach into my life. The letter and Federal website state that there is a penalty for noncompliance, but I can not find detail of such penalty. The site is: https://www.cms.hhs.gov/MandatoryInsRep/. They also provide a complex "CMS Refusal Form" that must be filed every year if you choose not to comply. Of course the refusal form looks like something published by the IRS in its detail and complexity.
I would appreciate any insight other liberty loving members have regarding this issue. Thanks!
