Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating the Little Rock, Arkansas-based healthcare provider ARcare for failing to safeguard sensitive patient information in a data breach that occurred in February of 2022. An investigation into the data breach found that unauthorized actor(s) gained access to the company’s computer system which contained highly sensitive identifiable protected personal, financial, and health information, including: names, Social Security numbers, driver’s license or state identification numbers, dates of birth, financial account information, medical treatment information, prescription information, medical diagnosis or condition information, and health insurance information.
Although ARcares’s investigation determined that patient information had been accessed in February of 2022, ARcare only recently began notifying victims of the incident. Due to this lapse in time between the breach and the notice to affected patients, hackers may have already been able to acquire and sell sensitive information and otherwise benefit from the fraudulent misuse of such information. Some individuals affected by the data breach at ARcare may have noticed one or more of the following types of fraudulent activity related to their healthcare or financial information: unauthorized credit card charges, requests for loans or benefits in a patient’s name without their consent, fake medical procedures ordered, and/or disrupted use of the institution’s website or patient portal.
