SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California's Department of Health Care Services is apologizing to nearly 50,000 Medi-Cal recipients whose Social Security numbers were disclosed on the outside of envelopes.
The department said Monday that it was immediately notifying the affected beneficiaries. It says their Social Security numbers were inadvertently included on mailing address labels created by a vendor.
Agency director David Maxwell-Jolly says the department is boosting its efforts to prevent such breaches in the future.
The Social Security numbers were included on letters mailed Feb. 1 to beneficiaries who receive adult day health care services.
