American Health Benefits / Ehealthinsurance.com Complaint - Does HIPPA not protect my online submission to a specific company?
EASTON, MARYLAND -- This morning I went online to google and searched for health insurance I clicked on ehealthinsurance.com and looked at several plans and rates. after finding 1 suitable through Carefirst I entered all my personal info like my meds and health records and personal stuff that is supposed to be protected under a HIPPA. Within 20 min of my submission I get a call from American Health benefits telling me based on the info you submitted you meet all our criteria. I was pissed. I did not submit anything to them. When I called back a very rude man answered and said when you put something online it becomes public record. first of all I thought I was filling out (what should have been a secure website questionnaire) but apparently not.
I want to know if this is legal as now I am being inundated with insurance spam. Absolutely ridiculous!!
