Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – Billing Code ICD-9 E978: Executions and Beheadings

As Obama Care is being implemented, another “wonderful” burdensome item is being added to the reform of the American Medical industry: the shift to the international medical codes.

In conjunction with Obama Care, every American citizen under international codes to link us to this new, wonderful “international” system. This the International Classification of Diseases (IDC) is part of the part of the “medical coding” under (WHO) the World Health Organization. This basically gives our health information to the United Nations.

As of October 1, 2014 the ICD 9 coding used has an additional 86,000 codes. ICD-10-PCS (Procedure Code System) “mandated” medical coding will add 68,105 codes. There will be 155,000 medical codes for medical professionals to learn and peruse for each patient. According to the Center for Medicare and Medicate ( is being undertaken under revisions mandated by the  Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA).



One of the most gruesome medical codes is  E978.Apparently it is a billable claim number, although I have to wonder who would ever file such a claim for reimbursement under medicaid, medicare, or any other program.

ICD 9 E 978 “Legal Execution
All executions performed at the behest of the judiciary or ruling authority [whether permanent or temporary] as:

  • asphyxiation by gas
  • beheading, decapitation (by guillotine)
  • capital punishment
  • electrocution
  • hanging
  • poisoning
  • shooting
  • other specified means

Yikes! What sort of medical treatment is this?

Ruling authority? A Temporary Ruling Authority engaged in decapitations by guillotine? What sort of nonsense is this? Exactly what is our government planning? And why is this billable under Obama Care? Exactly who would be submitting this bill? Is the “ruling authority” going to be paid for these beheadings by the Affordable Care Act (aka Obama Care)?

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA),[1] commonly called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or “Obamacare“,[2] is a United States federal statute signed into law byPresident Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. Together with the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act,[3] it represents the most significant regulatory overhaul of the U.S. healthcare system since the passage of Medicare and Medicaid in 1965.[4]
