Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy Services for failing to safeguard sensitive patient information in a data breach that occurred in November of 2021. The data breach was caused by unauthorized access to pharmacy’s IT network that contained the personal information of the pharmacy’s patients in California, Florida, and North Carolina. Examples of the types of data exposed in the leaks include names, dates of birth, addresses, social security numbers, medical records, lab results, diagnoses, medications, health insurance information, and dates of services.
Some of the BioPlus facilities connected with the data breaches include:
• BioPlus Pharmacy in Irvine, California
• BioPlus Pharmacy in Alamonte Springs, Florida
• BioPlus Pharmacy in Morrisville, North Carolina
Cybercriminals commonly use information obtained from data breaches to commit a wide variety of identity theft. For example, in previous data breaches, individuals have had to pay out of pocket for credit monitoring or for new fraudulent charges. Individuals may have noticed suspicious credit or banking activity, disrupted medical care, or medical appointments fraudulently created, canceled, and/or billed in their name.
