Insurance company: Doctors' Social Security numbers went on Web

A health insurance company in California has notified more than 100,000 doctors in Michigan and 10 other states that their personal information was posted on the Internet.

Health Net Federal Services spokeswoman Molly Tuttle says the doctors' Social Security numbers were accidentally posted on a Web site for about two months, beginning in November.

Tuttle says the company has no indication that anyone's doctor's personal information has been misused.

HNFS is a government contractor providing health insurance for nearly 3 million military families and veterans in 23 states.
