A search of health care providers on the Ingenix website revealed that Social Security numbers were sometimes attached to the names of providers as ID numbers. It appears that some health plans or preferred providers had listed the Social Security numbers as ID numbers. People searching for providers covered by their plans would have seen the numbers. Some health care providers may have had their Social Security numbers used as ID numbers for five years. At least 142 New Hampshire residents were affected, but the number of affected individuals nationwide was not revealed.
