Aetna Accidentally Reveals HIV Status of Clients in Mailing to 12,000

Insurer Aetna Inc. inadvertently revealed the HIV status of some clients in a mailing about medication for the disease sent to about 12,000 people last month.

Information about the HIV medication was visible through a plastic window in some cases, according to Aetna. The Legal Action Center and the AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania, which first revealed the mailing problem, are asking the insurer to make sure future breaches don’t happen.
