by Lisa Asbell, President of Identity Theft Resolutions
There were more than 275, 000 cases of medical information theft in the U.S. in 2009,
twice the number of cases in 2008. And the average fraud involving health information at $12, 100 is far higher
than the average of $4, 841 for all identity crimes last year. In part,
this is because criminals can use
stolen health data an average of four times longer than other identity crimes,
before the theft is caught. Medical Identity Theft is rampant and can take many forms -- some medical staff members download records on thumb drives to sell to people who will use them to commit fraud,
thieves may impersonate a patient,
or criminals can set up fake clinics to bill for phony treatments.
