Healthcare.gov Website Proof it’s a Security Risk for Users

A North Carolina resident, Justin Hadely, went on the Healthcare.gov exchange to review his insurance options after his health insurance was canceled. What he found was disturbing.

While he was on the exchange he discovered was a severe security flaw that revealed personal data of another user named Thomas Dougall from Elgin, South Carolina.

Hadley, a North Carolina father, buys his insurance on the individual market. His insurance company, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, directed him to HealthCare.gov in a cancellation letter he received in September.

After multiple attempts to access the problem-plagued website, Hadley finally made it past the registration page Thursday. That’s when he was greeted with downloadable letters about eligibility — for two people in South Carolina.

The letters, dated October 8, acknowledge receipt of an application to the Health Insurance Marketplace and the eligibility of family members to purchase health coverage. One of the letters was addressed to Thomas Dougall, a lawyer from Elgin, SC.

Hadley shared a screenshot and copy of the letter with redacted personal information.

Capture-2Read More: Users Warn of Security Risk, Breach of Privacy

Days ago, website security expert John McAfee told Neal Cavuto on Fox Business that the Obamacare website was a hackers wet dream.  Seems to us that healthcare.gov website is so flawed that you don’t even need a hacker to gain access to highly personal security information.

As it stands  now, the website is providing users personal data of other users that can be used for identity theft activities.  No wonder the source code states that there is no reasonable expectation of privacy for the users of the Obamacare exchange website.

Seems to us that using Obamacare website  gives you no expectation of privacy as data has been revealed to third parties.  Personal Data that in the wrong hands can lead to some serious problems for users.

We wouldn’t do it!
