Mo. computer glitch mails Medicaid recipients personal information
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There’s important news for Medicaid recipients who live in Missouri.
Missouri officials said they may have mailed out the personal information of more than 25,000 Medicaid recipients to the wrong addresses.
The Department of Social Services said a computer system error led to the possible incorrect mailings by the contractor company known as Infocrossing.
The department said the information could include names, birth dates, telephone numbers and in some cases, full Social Security numbers.
The agency says it has received no reports of identity theft, but the Infocrossing company is offering free credit monitoring for two years.
