Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota is sued over disclosing woman's medical records

Minneapolis Star Tribune, March 15, 2010

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota accidentally published a customer's personal medical information in a handbook prepared for 95,000 members of a popular healthcare plan, according to the woman's attorney. The unnamed woman filed suit in Hennepin County District Court, accusing Blue Cross of violating the Minnesota Health Records Act and breaching her privacy by disclosing her name and providing confidential information about her medical treatment. Blue Cross spokeswoman Pam Lux said the company discovered the error last year and immediately destroyed or stopped using the material.
