Did you know that medical records are one of the primary targets for identity thieves?
Thieves can steal your identity to get health services or insurance under your name. Just like your credit history, it's important to keep track of all your medical records, keeping them safe, and shredding any copies of them the second you're done. You are taking a terrible risk if you don’t shred sensitive material.
Congress recognized the need for national patient record privacy standards in 1996 when they enacted the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The law included provisions designed to save money for health care businesses by encouraging electronic transactions, but it also required new safeguards to protect the security and confidentiality of that information.
