Affordacare Urgent Care Clinics (Affordacare) has notified patients of a security breach that occurred earlier this year. Hackers attacked Affordacare’s servers and were able to compromise information on or around Feb. 1, 2020. Once Affordacare discovered the incident on Feb. 3, 2020, the vulnerability was removed, and law enforcement agencies were notified. Affordacare did not pay the ransom.
Initially, Affordacare believed the scope of the information affected was limited. However, Affordacare has learned the breach also may have affected Social Security numbers, diagnosis codes, relevant medical history, and other health care information in addition to what was previously reported. Future updates will be posted at Affordacare’s website: https://affordacare.com/.
Affected patients were offered twelve months of credit monitoring and CyberScan monitoring, a $1,000,000 insurance reimbursement policy, and fully managed identity theft recovery services. More information can be found in the letter mailed to affected patients. Affordacare recommends patients to take advantage of this free service offering.
Patients can call toll free (833) 570-0384 or go to https://ide.myidcare.com/affordacare to enroll in these services or for any related assistance.
