MD: Patient data exposed online

In a follow-up t0 a story first reported here,

A CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield dental HMO accidentally exposed personal information, including Social Security numbers, of about 75,000 members on a public Web site last month and didn’t notify them until about three weeks later.

The Dental Network, which is owned by CareFirst, informed the members – mostly Maryland and District of Columbia residents – that their names, addresses, dates of birth and Social Security numbers had been posted on its Web site for two weeks in February because of a technical error.
