    Why cyberthieves are hot for healthcare data:

    "...Dell SecureWorks, an information security services company, has recently identified several underground marketplaces where hackers are selling information packages known as “Kitz.” These contain verified health insurance info, SSNs, bank account info/logins (account and routing numbers, account type), driver’s licenses, full names, addresses, and phone numbers. In addition, the buyer can get counterfeit physical documents and hardware related to the identity data in the package (e.g., credit cards, driver’s license, insurance cards, etc.) The price is in the $1,200-$1,300 range per Kitz, which is far more lucrative than selling just a stolen credit card number.

    With health insurance information, the criminal impersonates hacking victims to obtain medical care or to purchase expensive medical equipment, such as motorized wheelchairs, that can then be resold. Since it often takes healthcare providers longer to detect this type of fraud than credit card companies or banks, the abuser will generally have more time to wreak havoc..."
