Morgan Gleason has had a lot more experience with the health-care system than most college students. Nine years ago, she was diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease called Juvenile Dermatomyositis, which causes symptoms like weak muscles and skin rashes.
Like many patients with a chronic illness, Gleason sees a lot of doctors. So she and her mother, Amy, who works at a health IT company called CareSync, always make it a point to request her medical records after a visit so they can store a copy of all her records in one place.
Two years ago, Gleason requested her records after visiting a women's health clinic in Florida. To her surprise, she found a note in the record saying she'd had two children. One was apparently still living and the other had died shortly after she gave birth.
According to the chart, which she provided to CNBC, Gleason would had to have given birth to the first child at age 13 for the dates to line up.
In fact, Gleason had never been pregnant.
It wasn't the first mistake. In a different record, Gleason had spotted a diagnosis of diabetes shouldn't have been there. She had looked into it after a doctor had gone off script by peppering her with questions about her blood sugar.
