MedStar Health Data Breach Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is involved in the MedStar Health (“MedStar”) data breach investigation, for a data breach affecting 183,079 individuals and their personal information.

About the MedStar Health Data Breach

MedStar reported that an unauthorized party gained access to confidential records by using three different employee email addresses. MedStar was not able to fully identify what information was compromised.

The MedStar data breach occurred between January 25, 2023, and October 18, 2023. The compromised information includes:

  • Names
  • Addresses
  • Dates of Birth
  • Dates of Service
  • Provider Names
  • Health Insurance Information

MedStar recently began informing individuals of these breaches through notice posted on the health organization’s website. All of the information 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.
