Isn't this what HIPAA is for?

I've been hearing a little sound bite on my local radio station of Hilary Clinton saying "I believe everyone -- every man, woman, and child -- should have quality, affordable health care in America. We should do it. We should do it, because, in this new economy, when people move jobs more than ever before, their health insurance should move with them." You can see the transcript on Hilary's Media Matters site here.
