Social security numbers stolen from Tufts Health members

Federal officials are investigating the theft of personal data of about 8,830 former and current members of a Tufts Health Plan insurance plan, including names, birth dates, and Social Security numbers but not medical, health, or financial information, the insurer said.

Tufts Health Plan said the victims were among those who had purchased Tufts Medicare Preferred policies, including supplemental Medicare coverage and a prescription drug plan. Tufts Medicare Preferred has about 127,000 members.
