Medical Identity Theft
To protect ourselves from Medical Identity Theft, the FTC has given us a link with some useful ideas.
Ask yourself this: HOW is our Protected Healthcare Information (PHI) getting “out there”?

Talk to us. Like this post, leave your comments below. We’d love to hear from you. This is the link to the FTC information. http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0171-medical-identity-theft
