We’re losing count. How can we not?

Less than a week after news broke about the IRS targeting conservative groups, Erin McCann of Healthcare IT News reports on a class action lawsuit against the agency.

From McCann’s report:

According to a report by Courthousenews.com, an unnamed HIPAA-covered entity in California is suing the IRS, alleging that some 60 million medical records from 10 million patients were stolen by 15 IRS agents. The personal health information seized on March 11, 2011, included psychological counseling, gynecological counseling, sexual/drug treatment and other medical treatment data.

The IRS, in case anyone’s forgotten, will play a major role in the implementation of Obamacare. Such a comfort.

Maybe in peeking at personal medical records, the agents were just trying to get a leg up. Like research or something!

Just think how the IRS is greedily rubbing it hands, anticipating the POWER it will have once it controls your Medical Records! #tcot

Shudder.

Dear God. Meltdown. MT @ewerickson: IRS faces class action lawsuit over theft of 60 million medical records goo.gl/IPeVL

At $25,000 “per violation per individual,” the compensation package resulting from the suit could add up to over $250 billion, all told.

Will the impending class action lawsuit force the IRS into disclosure? We all want transparency.

Can you trust the IRS with your medical records?

We can’t trust the IRS with anything.
