We are very concerned about the risk consumers incur as a result of the use of Social Security numbers on health insurance cards and related correspondence which is mailed. For the third year in a row, the Federal Trade Commission has listed identity theft as its top consumer complaint, affecting almost 10 million Americans in the last year. Many of these cases of identity theft are a result of lost or stolen wallets or mail. Identity thieves use the information on ID cards and in mail to steal identities, often ruining the good names and good credits of victims.
