Will Obamacare Require RFID Chips in Humans by March 23 2013?

A rumor states that American citizens will be required to be implanted with a microchip in their hand or forehead as part of Obamacare. Is this real or a hoax?

It’s not true.

The Rumor: Microchipping and the Book of Revelations
The rumor states that Obamacare will require all US citizens to be implanted with a tracking microchip. It is often related to prophecy in the book of Revelations in the Bible.

Revelations 13 states:

16. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

One variant of the online rumor states:

This new Health Care (Obamacare) law requires an RFID chip implanted in all of us. This chip will not only contain your personal information with tracking capability but it will also be linked to your bank account. And get this, Page 1004 of the new law (dictating the timing of this chip), reads, and I quote: “Not later than 36 months after the date of the enactment”. It is now the law of the land that by March 23rd 2013 we will all be required to have an RFID chip underneath our skin and this chip will be link to our bank accounts as well as have our personal records and tracking capability built into it…

This is actually two unrelated images: A blood glucose monitor and a diagram of a pet microchip.

HR 3200
What rumor mongers are circulating is a complete misinterpretation of part of an earlier bill that was never even passed. 

One of the first attempts at Obamacare was HR 3200, also known as America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009. In this bill, there was a section that called for a “National Device Registry.” This was meant to keep a registry of all medical devices. A couple of phrases within this section apparently raised eyebrows of conspiracy theorists:

‘‘(A) is or has been used in or on a patient; and

‘‘(B) is—
2 ‘‘(i) a class III device; or
3 ‘‘(ii) a class II device that is implantable, life-supporting, or life-sustaining.”

Seeing “in or on a patient” along with “implantable” are the only things that anywhere resemble the “embedded microchip” rumor.

This, however,  is merely legalese for stating that any devices – inside or outside of a patient – would be subject to the device registry. There was no requirement for a device to be implanted in humans.

And let’s not forget that HR 3200 was not passed and did not become law. The legislation that eventually became law did not contain the “device registry” nor does it mention RFID chips or implantation of devices.

The Photo
A photo is often circulated with the RFID story as “proof” that these microchips exist. The photo, however,  is doctored and combines two unrelated images. The first image shows fingers holding a microchip. This is actually microchip to be used in continuous glucose monitoring in humans. The rest of the graphic is taken from a 2008 illustration by How Stuff Works which describing pet microchipping. The words “Pet Microchip” in the original were replaced with “RFID Chip” in the hoax version.

Sources of original photos: Glucose and Pet Microchipping.

2013 Fake Stories
In 2013, a series of RFID-related articles by the satirical National Report website have been circulated by those unaware of the farcical nature of the site.

    If this worthless POS that takes up space in the White House, desires to implement
    his chip program, then permit him to be the first one to act its first customer. Similar,
    if this worthless POS desires to implement a gun control program, then, and only
    then, must he submit a plan to confiscate all guns owned by criminals in the U.S.

    Christian’s ,We need to pray! The Bible is fulfilling! All I can say, is if you dont. no Jesus, ask him to come into your heart and to save you! Jesus is the only way! God bless you all!

  3. Why all the name calling. The chip is ready to be emplanted. It is called the mark of the beast. I believe he must be revealed first. The question is who? Time will tell. Hitler was also a type of the beast. But he was not.

    • That really don’t matter who because the Church will be raptured up before this take place real bible blood bought believers. Don’t believe every word a man tell you it’s in the bible. Study to show thyself approved. The Holy Spirit will reveal the truth to you.

  5. I hope all of u who are struggling to understand that god is real i pray u open ur eyes an see that an he loves us all GOD BLESS ALL OF U :)

  6. We are suppose to show Fathers love to a dying world, but here we ar fighting ppl that doesnt believe in Father. Rather than been the salt of the earth and the light. Jrsus came 2 heal the sick, so who are we 2 judge there is only One, that is without sin and it is Jesus…..

  7. All of you guys who are posting all this stuff about ignorance , Don’t do it like that
    What does condemming somebody going to do? Make them upset? Its not going to help ..
    Don’t Judge people , tell them about the love of God .. you can’t change anybody , only God can

  8. So as I read these comments I see nothing but ppl judging ppl not one time have I seen a comment that dad with the question in perspective which happens to be something that is going to affect everyone not just one person.

  9. Anna you hit the nail on the head, the bible tells us the signs and they are here for sure. As for the most of you I agree. And for those of you who do not believe in our Lord Jesus Christ I do hope no I pray you find him soon before your souls are lost for eternity. Meanwhile I will keep yall in my prays.
    God Bless Every One

  10. God Believer! I agree with you bro, people who says that God doesn’t exist is a real moron plus they are brainwashed. These people should read the bible and understand it. If God didn’t exist where we came from really. Hell is real, Satan’s is real and God is real. If there’s God there’s a bell so there’s heaven and hell.

      And of course you have something a bit more concrete than your own personal beliefs and opinions to back up those claims, I assume….

    Am I that little voice in your head? I am not sure but one thing I do know is that
    Whoever this “Lucifer” troll is, they sure got your goat. The answer to the RUMOUR is that “IT’S NOT TRUE”.
    Why are you all here trying to reform a troll when there are so many things you could be enjoying. Like becoming more imformed on what is really going on around you.
    When was the last time you went outside, went to church, had lunch with a friend, visited a sick friend or family member, helped out at a shelter or nursing home even if it’s to listen to someone talk? Or read a book or watch a movie with your family? Maybe volunteer at an Animal Shelter, read to a classroom of special needs children or just a room of kids?
    Get off of the computer and turn it OFF.
    Now do something with your life.

    • Because God loves Him too, it’s not his fault my job is to spread the truth, this will save his soul so that he can make it to heaven. Doing good deeds trying to be a good person don’t make you right in the sight of God we must have faith in Him and that’s by spreading his word reaching out to the lost, broke hearted, hurting individuals. This man Lucifer need Gods love too

  12. Theres bin so many signs thats says n the bible that if it happends it means its close to the end of the world n the chip is one and i think obama sud not do THIS!!! :(

  13. Some of you ppl are just soooooo messed up n god isnt just some ghost! God made you and theres no such thing as a ghost!!!!!! And the chips are a sin!!!!!

    • In the United States, Muslims do not have to purchase Obamacare,
      because it is against their religion; therefore, we Prostenants can claim,
      accepting the chip will be against our religion.

  14. Unless a band of elves from the NSA snuck into my house back On March 23, 2013 (6 months ago) and implanted the RFID Chip while I slept, I think the author of this hoax may have run out of his “happy pills” at the time of this rant.
    -Obamacare is a good law. The insurance exchange is relatively inexpensive compared to what I pay though my job. (My portion is 60% of cost which equals $680.00 USD. Deducted from my paycheck monthly). Under Obama Care, my cost will be about $200.00 cheaper with the same deductibles.
    -in 2005 I was forced to file bankruptcy because I got cancer and had not been at my job long enough to get health coverage. Under Obama Care I would have been able to buy insurance and would not have had to file bankruptcy. For me it is a win win.
    -you can choose basic (HMO) style Insurance for cheap, but it has high deductibles. You can also choose (epo) style insurance which is a mix of HMO and PPO insurance, the deductibles are lower, you have to stay in network but you don’t need a referral to see a specialist.

    If you don’t like the idea of mandatory heath insurance grow-up, you have to insure your car. You need to have healthcare because while you may never get sick now, you probably will when you get older.

    • Sir that’s exactly how the devil works, make you feel good about saving what $400 a month I personally can’t put a price on my eternal soul.

  15. This is my view. I am and disappointed in the negative reading blogs in the forum. It is important to be informed, however, one should be well read in their Bible. God speaks of the truth He is not a liar, Satan is. Satan does not have anyone’s best interest only to kill, steal, and destroy. Now here is my personal view. When the RFID chip is implemented, it will start in health care (which there are people have already been implanted by the way–see videos and research it. My personal view is where do you stand and which side of the fence will you be on. Will you serve and be worthy for God, or will you take Satan’s mark and be condemned. If you research on the RFID chip, it has already been manufactured in China, yes China, and it contains lithium in it. Once lithium spreads from the chip it will call severe sores and blisters in a human body. Yes research it the information is out there. When a person voluntarily takes the chip it will be only voluntary. The government and no man can force you to take it period. My view is that we are all going to die anyways, so how we leave this earth, you might as well leave on good standing with God than be a slave to Satan and condemned. There is a heaven and a hell, watch videos of near death experiences of peoples testimonies. I recommend everyone to read their Bibles, research and be aware and be prepared. You cannot trust man nor government. This is what happens when we get too big government federalism, the wrong leader will abuse their power and authority not respecting the U.S. Constitution, you, me, and the people. Big government under wrong leadership will overstep the boundaries. Take a stand for what you believe is right. If you don’t know John 3:16, For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten son, that whoso ever believes in Him, shall not perish but have eternal life. That is the promise God made and gave to us, to have hope and one day have eternal life with Him. The choice is free will, and God’s gift is to have salvation. It is God’s desire that all men come to the knowledge of Him. Oh by the way, God is a supreme being and a Holy Spirit, not a ghost.

  16. The Bible is the PRECISE word of God true to the last jot and tittle. Just. The fact that people are so uneasy with Obama that they can think he is capable of this shows how little they trust him or have faith I.him rightly so. We are now under Communist occupation. Expect the worst bit he mau win the battle God wins the war. Amen

    • I don’t understand how anyone can approach the Bible in a literal way. It was written by various people over time, far removed from the events recorded in same, and then undergoing many translations down through the ages. Furthermore, some of the understandings of fundamentalists strain all credulity.

      Precise? Really? That must be why so many people see the ‘word of god’ in so many different ways not to mention all the different religions that see things differently. Face it, ‘god’ is a made up character to keep man ‘in check’. Why else would there of been several characters similar to god over thousands of years, many years before ‘your’ god came along. Your bible is an interpretation penned by several different people and has been rewritten in different ways over the years. There is no god, no heaven & no hell. Keep clinging to your idols if that helps you sleep at night. We all know that religion has some of the biggest hypocrites that walk the earth. It is a controlling, money making scandal.

    • if the bible is the precise word of god then why has the bible been rewritten and changed since the last thousand years?

    The interpretation of the bible can be full of truth or consequences? Its when it happens but not in my time I refuse to even wear the mark of the beast surely won’t pay to have it!

  18. Mm Obama chips. Got me a delicious bag of Obama chips here. Mmm delicious I’m going to hell.

    • You are so very right!!!!! Please look at this site for my responce to the cluster f-k person and if you need any help with further with other notable things we can talk…my name and phone # is on my comment!

  19. I could not have said it any more perfect curiouser49

  20. Ahahah This is so funny. All their smart ass “tricks” saying – its NOT mandatory. There are hundreds of ways to make you WANT to implant this thing. For example you are in the hospital with some serious decease and they can do something like this – “we’ve updated all our medical equipment and we can’t help you unless you have a chip. Our equipment just can’t work this way. So you either implant this thing or die. hoho” boom. You’re done. It just the matter of time when it happens
