A case pending in U.S. District Court is claiming that forced participation in Medicare infringes on one’s right to privacy and makes choices about one’s healthcare that violates the First, Fourth, Fifth, Ninth, and Fourteenth Amendments to the Constitution. Lead plaintiff Brian Hall charges the Social Security Administration (SSA) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) with improperly adopting illegal and coercive policies that deny otherwise eligible retirees their rightful Social Security benefits if those retirees choose not to enroll in Medicare, the federal government's voluntary health insurance entitlement program.

American Association for Health Freedom says, "There is no evidence to suggest that government-mandated healthcare is more cost-effective, prolongs lives, or even improves the quality of life. In fact, our current system, which pushes prescriptions and procedures, is just the opposite: it is costly, and does not produce superior results when dealing with chronic degenerative disease. Freedom to choose one’s healthcare is a basic issue that must not be trampled just because we now have a “we can’t afford to put this off” mentality."
