With Obamacares massive Patient Data Hub poised to open soon, a sloppy mistake by an Obamacare employee hasnt exactly inspired confidence that Americans private information will be closely guarded by Obamacares powers-that-be. As the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports (and Andrew Johnson highlights at NRO), an Obamacare exchange employee in Minnesota accidentally sent out an email containing 2,400 Americans Social Security numbers.
The Star Tribune writes:
A MNsure employee accidentally sent an e-mail file to an Apple Valley insurance brokers office on Thursday that contained Social Security numbers, names, business addresses and other identifying information on more than 2,400 insurance agents.
An official at MNsure, the states new online health insurance exchange, acknowledged it had mishandled private data. A MNsure security manager called the broker, Jim Koester, and walked him and his assistant through a process of deleting the file from their computer hard drives.
Koester said he willingly complied, but was unnerved.
The more I thought about it, the more troubled I was, he said. What if this had fallen into the wrong hands? Its scary. If this is happening now, how can clients of MNsure be confident their data is safe?

If anyone thinks that any body in charge of this actually cares, wrongo!
This kind of thing is going to happen. Privacy will be a joke.
Accident My Butt!!
A MNsure employee ..probably an ex TSA employee
Amazing all the HIPA Nazis are stone cold silent over all the information sharing of CommieCare.
Guess it is just like everything else government related, CONTROL.
The government collects and tracks all this data. It’s nuts. We need someone who will cut out about two dozen agencies and asap. We’ve got a surfeit of government.
Snowden already demonstrated that privacy is a joke !!
Your cellphone gives out your address and location.
Your computer gives out your ISP address ,and shares your email and instant messages.
Your car talks to you and gives out your address.
Your "EZ Pass" gets read several times per trip without you even knowing it .
Your cable company knows what progams you watch .
Your gas company, and water district knows when you are home using the 'smart system.'
That police car that pased you by just read your license plate and your insurance company.
And that ' drone ' that flew over your back yard checking the shrubbery was accidental .
And you think you have any privacy now ..!!
And so it begins.
“Accidentally?” You expect us to believe that line? Really?
