Article says this:

  • The data for sale includes names, birth dates, policy numbers, diagnosis codes and billing information. Fraudsters use this data to create fake IDs to buy medical equipment or drugs that can be resold, or they combine a patient number with a false provider number and file made-up claims with insurers, according to experts who have investigated cyber attacks on healthcare organizations.

I would have assumed businesses would use it to avoid hiring expensive healthcare cost employees and that they would target people with specific diseases for various types of fraud.

I mean they already target seniors since they are most likely to have failing mental faculties and be easy prey. And a lot of the "charities" collect money that maybe 10% actually goes to the actual charity/research.

And some doctors already futz with the billing codes to maximize payouts, picking similar injuries that pay out better via insurance. So the patient won't recognize it if it involves the same part of the body, etc.

Kind of a stupid article because it really does not detail how they make money off the records.

I'm sure shipping everyone's medical records offshore to foreign companies for cheap data entry surely isn't going to come back to bite us in the butt...

I'm sure a lot of employers would be happy to buy everyone's medical records. Some of them try to trick employees into giving them all that info - good way for them to determine who they should fire first.
