Groups: State illegally disclosed AIDS patient information
California Watch

The ACLU and two AIDS advocacy groups claim the state’s Medi-Cal program illegally disclosed the names and contact information of about 5,000 AIDS patients. The state health insurance program acknowledges that it provided patient names, addresses and phone numbers to an AIDS treatment organization in Los Angeles, but said that group had contracted with the state in 2007 to serve those patients.
