How can medical patients keep their right to financial privacy and prevent identity theft?

Patients should learn to exercise their assertiveness and refuse to provide privacy invasive information. Key parts of one’s personal life are necessarily kept secret to avoid the risk of bank identity theft, medical identity theft, and to protect identity from all who might attempt to commit a fraud crime of identity theft.

Banking secrecy should be practiced at all times. Medical service providers should not have credit card account numbers in their  files or the consumer being treated will be at risk of medical identity theft and/or bank identity theft, and credit card identity theft.

Financial privacy and banking privacy go a long way toward preventing medical identity theft. Prevent all who provide goods and services to you and your family from prying into your personal affairs. Do not  provide credit card numbers, bank account numbers to providers of medical services.

Pay bills privately with money orders or cash.

Keep your home privacy by utiltizing an offshore mailing address or other private address to receive your important correspondences. Home privacy goes a long way toward preventing medical identity theft and other forms of identity theft. Fraudsters will be unable to intercept your mail and case your house when home privacy is practiced.

Consumer privacy can be achieved through privacy living. Protecting privacy will stop identity theft during the current privacy crisis, and indeed, we are in a privacy crisis as identity theft and fraud continue to escalate at a rapid pace and identity theft is the leading fraud crime in the U.S.A. for about seven years in a row.

Consumer privacy steps can be taken to prevent identity theft.

Identity protection can be accomplished through consumer privacy living, and the best identity theft protection is a plan that empowers the individual and his/her family to travel, bank, work, and live anonymously.

Travel anonymously by using a Trust to hold title to your automobile.

Bank secrecy prevents bank identity theft. Holding accounts in a trust’s name or a business entity-when done correctly, breaks the paper trail from money under your control to your true name. Credit card identity theft can be prevented through the use of pseudo names on prepaid debit cards while making purchases online and the secure use of credit cards held in your name.

Medical identity theft prevention may save your life.

Prevent medical identity theft by keeping insurance policy numbers and Social Security numbers out of the wrong hands. Provide policy numbers only when services are being provided. Do not give medical providers your Social Security number.

Internet privacy protection is important as financial identity theft may occur through the theft of accounts accessed online or through correspondences linked to you. Creating a new identity is the best identity theft protection for online privacy.
