COLUMBIA - More than 1,000 University of Missouri hospital patients got letters today informing them their billing information is missing.

The university's Health Care officials say a Kansas City bank used a private courier to send patient payment information during the week of June 6th.

The hospital system didn't get the information as expected on June 14 and immediately notified the University of Missouri Police Department. Police started an investigation to find out what happened.

Hospital officials said they terminated the courier's contract and are taking "immediate action steps" to correct the problem.
