Troubles of Medical Identity Theft

An article today describes the nightmare that medical identity theft can be. Unlike other forms of identity theft, medical identity theft has consequences that can last a lifetime. 

 The harm of medical identity thieves is that their medical history can be linked to the victim’s own history. That could have serious healthcare ramifications for the victim. If incorrect medical histories are tied to the victim, it might hurt the victim’s chances for getting affordable health insurance.
