Tucson patients personal information found in Tempe

KVOA reports that information on 8 patients of a Tucson doctor including their names, date of birth, Social Security numbers, and health insurance information wound up in a yard in Tempe.

We won’t name the Tucson doctor involved because it is still unclear where the mistake was made, but we do know the company that handles his billing is in Chandler, just a few miles from where the papers were found in Tempe.

We called that company, to see if they could shed some light on what happened…”Honestly, i don’t know. everything that leaves our office is shredded”

KVOA says they’ll follow up, and I hope they do.
