I was notified in February 2010 that my health insurance carrier had two laptops stolen from their offices back in December 2009. No reason was given for the delay in informing those affected. These laptops contained personal information including names, addresses, phone numbers, SSN and protected health info. In mid January, and again today, I was contacted by the fraud departments of two separate credit card companies indicating that someone had called to obtain credit using my personal information. Do I have a claim against my health insurer for being negligent? I've spent countless hours trying to clean this mess up.
