Obamacare Exchange Sending Customers Private Info on Other Customers
According to Heritage Foundation, Healthcare.gov users risk breach of their data security in giving their information to the government for purposes of entering an Obamacare health exchange. According to Justin Hadley, a father from North Carolina, he received Obamacare eligibility letters for two other people. “I was in complete shock,” he said. One letter was intended for Thomas Dougall of Elgin, South Carolina, who told Heritage, “The plans they offered were grossly expensive and didn’t provide the level of care I have now.”
The Associated Press has already reported that the government knew about the “high” security risk of the Obamacare health exchange. “When consumers fill out their online … applications, they can trust that the information they’re providing is protected by stringent security standards and that the technology underlying the application process has been tested and is secure,” said Health and Human Services Department spokeswoman Joanne Peters last week, anyway.
As for Hadley, his current plan was cancelled, forcing him to enter the exchange – if he does so, his monthly premiums will skyrocketed by 92 percent and his deductible will increase by 100 percent.
