That’s the scariest article I’ve read in a while. I actually saw my own “score” looking back. I’m prescribed meds for ADHD, and my doctor was telling me about how they have to follow some “new system” to prevent ODs. He showed me the computer screen, and it was in fact exactly like a credit score. Just some numbers and a few pie chart looking things that had my medical history.

Luckily, I guess my score was low, so I was allowed to continue being prescribed the medicine that I’ve been prescribed for years, but still horrible either way. I can’t even imagine what it feels like being a patient with a “high score” for reasons outside of your control.
