Data Breach Class Action Lawsuit

January 22, 2024 -- Attention: victims of the InHealth data breach.

Abington Cole + Ellery is investigating the recently announced InHealth data breach.

On November 11, 2023, InHealth detected a breach involving illegal access and attempted disruption of its computer systems. The company initiated an inquiry, enlisting external forensic experts to fortify its network, assess the incident's extent and nature, and address any impacts.

During this ongoing probe, InHealth discovered encryption of certain files by an unauthorized entity and acknowledged the potential exposure of some individuals' information. Following the initial detection of this activity, InHealth embarked on an investigative and remedial course of action. This process entailed verifying network security, restoring compromised systems, and identifying the scope of personal and health information at risk.

To enhance future protection, InHealth has strengthened its data security measures by implementing more stringent access controls, reducing data retention, and adding advanced monitoring systems.

As a result of the data breach, InHealth is offering free credit monitoring and/or identity theft protection services to affected individuals.

Approximately 12,100 individuals were affected by the InHealth data breach.

Breached data may include, but is not necessarily limited to: names, dates of birth, demographic data, social security numbers, diagnostic codes, prescription data, prescribing physicians, products purchased and health insurance/billing data.
