Obamacare: Connecticut warns of potential identity theft

June 8, 2014

Last week a backpack was found in Connecticut which included the personal information of 400 Obamacare enrollees.

Four notepads with the personal information of approximately 400 people — including names, Social Security numbers and birth dates of customers of the state’s health insurance exchange — were discovered in the backpack, reports the Hartford Courant.

 “The notepads initially appear to belong to an employee of Maximus, the vendor providing call center services to Access Health CT,” said Peter Van Loon, the chief operating officer of the exchange. “Close examination of the data is indicating that fewer than 200 Social Security numbers were contained on the pads.”

  Now the Connecticut healthcare exchange is warning its customers about the risk of identity theft.

  This should not come as any surprise because America’s Watchtower wrote about the potential of identity theft in this post almost one year ago. Because Barack Obama wanted to make sure the website was up and running on time they focused on the front end of the site while ignoring the back end of the site, which includes the payment mechanism and the security aspects of the website. On top of that the Obama regime knew about the security risks and launched the website anyway. Now we are supposed to be surprised when a case of potential identity theft is uncovered?

  Supporters of Obamacare will claim that Connecticut’s exchange is state-run and therefor this cannot be attributed to Obamacare itself, however this is endemic of a larger problem and in my opinion this is only the beginning.

  Are we really supposed to believe that the much larger Federal website will be any more secure, or better run, than the smaller state-run exchanges?

    The three greatest lies updated: you can keep your plan, you can keep your doctor and the Obummercare website is secure.

    It is all being compiled in a massive database and will lead to everyone being tracked, eventually. Too much power concentrated in the hands of the Government is never a good thing.

    I imagine they already have that database on each of us from birth to present! They just have to decide when and where to use it. Larry, I have never felt less secure!
