Health Insurer Loses Hard Drives Containing Personal Data On 950K Patients

Why wait around for hackers to steal your clients' personal information when you can just lose it yourself? Although the company has no idea where the drives are, they don't believe the data has been used "inappropriately."

Centene has determined the hard drives contained the personal health information of certain individuals who received laboratory services from 2009-2015 including name, address, date of birth, social security number, member ID number and health information. The hard drives do not include any financial or payment information. The total number of affected individuals is approximately 950,000.
