Privacy Calculator – Question 2

Do you take any prescription medications?

Yes

If you answered yes, please know that all prescriptions are data-mined, even if you pay cash. For pharmacies to be paid electronically, they enter your information into an automated system. These systems build prescription profiles on every prescription user that are updated every 24 hours. Insurance companies, drug companies, employers, research institutions, government agencies, and other corporations purchase these profiles. Congress passed a ban on the sale of protected health information in 2009 but your data is up for the highest bidder.  Learn More About Prescription Privacy.
