UCD patient documents were stolen from an UltraEx courier service in West Sacramento in August. The information consisted of copies of checks and remittance records between the University and insurance companies. Six patients had their full Social Security numbers exposed and 40 patients had some part of their Social Security number exposed. The University now prohibits the courier service from storing documents overnight.
