Maryland HIX data privacy under the microscope

The Baltimore Sun, October 17, 2013

Marylanders who signed up for coverage through the state's new health insurance exchange did so under the condition that their information could be shared with law enforcement. The policy sparked debate in the conservative blogosphere after the Weekly Standard published a post saying it raised privacy concerns. "We will not sell your information to others. Any information that you provide to us in your application will be used only to carry out the functions of Maryland Health Connection," the policy states. "The only exception to this policy is that we may share information provided in your application with the appropriate authorities for law enforcement and audit activities."
