HEALTHCARE PRIVACY—U.S.March 16, 2011
As the Department of Health and Human Services' Office for Civil Rights prepares for its springtime road show to train state attorneys general on how to file a HIPAA federal civil lawsuit, Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen is asking one health plan for details about a recent breach involving the data of 1.9 million enrollees, LegalNewsline.com reports. The California Department of Managed Health Care is also investigating the breach, which Health Net confirmed on Monday. In a letter, Jepsen asked the company to provide two years of credit monitoring services to those impacted.
