The MIB only contains information from the records of disability or life insurance companies. The MIB does NOT contain any information that medical insurance companies, hospitals, HMO's, etc. have within their databases. If you have applied for life or disability insurance, did not reveal your medical history in full on the application and your entire medical condition is not diagnosed as a result of the physical the carrier's doc performs on you, your complete medical history will not be in the database of the MIB. However, this does not mean the information doesn't exist on many other databases that are open to abuse.
One of the most incidious practices that is occuring presently is the sale by large drugstore chains of certain customer lists that contain the names and exact prescriptions of users of certain drugs to pharmeceutical companies. Caveat Emptor!
