Cherry Health Data Breach Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod is involved in the Cherry Street Services, Inc. (Cherry Health) data breach investigation.

Data Breach Details

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is involved in the Cherry Health data breach investigation, for a data breach affecting 184,372 individuals and their personal information.

On or about December 21, 2023, Cherry Health noticed that their systems were unexpectedly down. The health organization started an investigation and determined that it had experienced a hacking event by which unauthorized access to its data was obtained. Cherry Health concluded their investigation of the attach on March 25, 2024.  The impacted information includes:

  • Addresses
  • Phone numbers
  • Dates of birth
  • Health insurance information
  • Health insurance ID number
  • Patient ID number
  • Provider name
  • Service date
  • Diagnosis/treatment information
  • Prescription information
  • Financial account information and/or Social Security numbers

Impact of Data Breaches

Cherry Health informed individuals of this breach through a mailed notice, delivered on or about January 24, 2024. It appears that the company updated their data breach notices and sent a finalized version on or around April 16, 2024.

All of the information stolen is likely valuable and dangerous if adversely used against affected victims. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft noticed identity theft attempts ranging from:

  • fraudulent charges on bank accounts or credit cards;
  • unauthorized credit card applications;
  • medical services or government services ordered in their name;
  • their information being posted on the dark web;
  • a massive uptick in the number of spam text messages, calls and emails received;

Though credit monitoring is offered, any amount less than a lifetime of protection is simply inadequate. Data breaches present a lifetime of risk. Additionally, fraud and identity theft attempts or attacks can happen for many years following a data breach. Furthermore, individuals impacted by data breaches should remain vigilant, such as by closely monitoring their accounts, changing passwords, and acting quickly to prevent or minimize fraud once it has occurred.
