RALEIGH, N.C. -
State health officials said Friday that they had inadvertently disclosed the personal information of tens of thousands of children receiving Medicaid coverage, but were tight-lipped about precisely what caused the massive privacy breach.

The N.C. Department of Health and Human Services issued a written release saying that new Medicaid cards for nearly 49,000 children were mailed on Dec. 30 to the wrong people. The information on the cards includes the children's names, Medicaid identification numbers, dates of birth and the names of their primary care doctors - personal medical data that is supposed to be tightly protected under federal law.

New federal Medicaid eligibility rules starting Jan. 1 allowed the agency to shift medical coverage for more than 70,000 children of low-income families from the state-run NC Health Choice to Medicaid.
