Steffy on Private Medical Data

I guess I need to keep track of the times the Houston Chronicle's Loren Steffy and I agree. This article is one of those times.

I am of the belief that certain things should be private and one of those things is medical data. And yet, the information age has spawned whole industries dedicated to getting your data and using it - sometimes for good, sometimes for bad.

When insurance companies start denying coverage or payments for genetic or unavoidable health problems (if that is not already happening) then that is going too far.
