Medical Identity Theft: Just a quick example of how it can go wrong.  If you're a provider, seriously consider using the FTC "Red Flags Rule" materials to prevent medical identity theft: not only will your patients be safer, so will your pocketbook.  Don't forget that if you treat patient A and patient A has stolen B's identity, you'll end up billing B, and when B's insurance finds out, you'll have to reimburse the money; and A will likely be long gone at that point, and you'll be left holding the bag.

You may not be required to implement the FTC policies, but you certainly should consider them.
