A second state department says it will investigate the information-security practices of Health Net Inc.

Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones on Tuesday requested that Health Net Inc. forward the findings of its investigation into a recent privacy breach to the California Department of Insurance. Woodland Hills-based Health Net said Monday that it was conducting a probe after being informed by information technology vendor IBM that it was unable to find some computer server drives containing sensitive information, including personal data about patients.
