NATIONAL -- Having your medical identity stolen is a growing problem. A recent study shows more than 40% of all identity theft happened in healthcare.

That's more than banking, government records and education. It includes information like your social security and health insurance numbers being taken.

Why would someone want to steal your medical identity? It could help them get medically services illegally, like insurance reimbursements or prescription drugs.
