Highmark notified 3,700 members that documents containing their names, policy identification and Social Security numbers were missing. This is the second such data spill involving the region’s dominant health insurer in four months. In January, the company mailed a premium billing statement to Boscov’s Department Store, a client in Reading, according to Highmark. The envelope arrived damaged and torn; pages were also missing. The pages included the names and other identifying information for 3,700 members.
