On January 27, 2012, MHS learned that at least one employee may have accessed patient information in order to receive fraudulent tax returns.  A second employee was later identified and both employees were terminated.  Patient names, Social Security numbers, and dates of birth may have been accessed between 2011 and early 2012.  Medical information was not involved. Law enforcement requested that MHS delay notifying patients.  On April 12, 2012, letters were mailed to patients who may have been affected.
