Reminder Bill Raises Privacy Concerns In California

Privacy concerns have been raised about a bill moving through the California Legislature that would let pharmacies partner with drugmakers to send reminder letters to patients to refill their scrips, The Sacramento Bee reports.
The senate bill is sponsored by a medical information company facing an invasion of privacy class-action suit, which alleges some of the same practices the legislation would make legal. The bill recently cleared the Senate after state Senator Ron Calderon assured colleagues it would protect confidentiality.
