A contractor working for Georgia's Department of Community Health has revealed that they've lost a disc which contained information on almost 3 million Georgians who are enrolled in Medicare and PeachCare health programs.
Affiliated Computer Services was hired to process the data, which included billing and health care claims. It also held sensitive information, such as Social Security numbers, names and addresses. The disc was being sent from Atlanta to Maryland.
Company spokesman David Shapiro stated there has been no apparent evidence of identity theft as the disc has only been missing for a few days, and as a result are treating it like a missing package.
