Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating the Arizona-based Yuma Regional Medical Center (“Yuma”), which recently notified approximately 700,000 patients of a ransomware incident affecting some of its internal systems that allowed cybercriminals to access patient health information between April 21 and April 25, 2022. The impacted information includes the following: names, Social Security numbers, health insurance information, and limited medical information.
Yuma only recently began notifying victims of the data breach. Due to this lapse in time between the data breach and the notice to affected patients, hackers may have already been able to acquire and sell the impacted sensitive information and otherwise benefit from the fraudulent misuse of such information. Some individuals affected by the data breach may have already noticed (or may soon notice) one or more of the following types of fraudulent activity related to their personal and health information: unauthorized credit card inquiries and/or 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.
