Change Healthcare and UnitedHealth Data Breach Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is involved in the Change Healthcare and UnitedHealth data breach investigation, for data breaches potentially affecting individuals nationwide and their personal information.

On February 21, 2024, Change Healthcare experienced a cybersecurity incident, where what is suspected to be a foreign nation-state associated cybersecurity organization gained access to Change Healthcare’s information technology systems. Change Healthcare is one of the largest insurance and prescription processors in the world, and has boasted that they handle over 15 billion transactions daily. While Change has not revealed what information may be affected, sensitive information of healthcare institutions, businesses, and patients across the nation may be at risk.

Much of the information Change handles is highly sensitive, and if stolen, is likely valuable and dangerous to affected victims. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft have noticed identity theft attempts ranging from fraudulent charges on bank accounts or credit cards, to unauthorized credit card applications, to medical services or government services ordered in their name, to their information being posted on the dark web, to a massive uptick in the number of spam text messages, calls and emails received.
