Another myth busted: Will doctors be required to ask patients questions about their sexual history?

Will doctors be required to ask patients questions about their sexual history under the Affordable Care Act?

Q: Will doctors be required to ask patients questions about their sexual history under the Affordable Care Act?

A: No. A program created by the stimulus law not Obamacare encourages health professionals to use electronic records. But there is no requirement in the program to ask anything about sexual history.

1. I just had a physical and the PA asked

 

if I was monogamous or not and I said yes and that was that. No further questions regarding sex...but what if I said no?

My wife had her physical same office a month prior and they asked her the same question...

I hate that sort of prejudice against seniors.

6. In my humble opinion,

a good doctor should and would ask about sexual history as a matter of course. But no, it is not required under the ACA.

7. What amazes me about the RW propagation of

this myth is that the RW normally would not only have no problem with medical professionals asking women about their sexual history, they'd probably incorporate the requirement into the constitution itself if they could. They've already tried (and succeeded, in some cases) to enact and implement such intrusive laws against women in many states.
