Beneficiary Identification Cards (BICs) were mailed to the wrong recipients between December 10 and December 18.  A computer programming error caused the BICs of children being moved from Healthy Families program enrollment to Medi-Cal enrollment to be sent to households of other Medi-Cal and Healthy Families participants.  Names, Client Index Numbers, dates of birth, genders, and card issue dates were exposed.  People who received incorrect cards were instructed to return them.  Stamped envelopes that were addressed to DHCS were sent out with breach notifications.
