Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed in light of the Navvis data breach.
As part of their investigation, they need to hear from individuals who received a notice stating they were impacted.
A security breach occurred at Navvis & Company, LLC, a provider of health management services to healthcare organizations. The breach was discovered on July 25, 2023 after suspicious activity was identified within the network environment. It was later determined that, between July 12, 2023 and July 25, 2023, a cyberattack had taken place and patients' personal and protected health information may have been accessed or acquired by an unauthorized actor. The information involved includes names, dates of birth, Medicaid/Medicare ID numbers, health plan information, medical treatment information, medical record numbers, patient account numbers, case identification numbers, provider and doctor information, health record information and, in some cases, Social Security numbers.
Affected individuals include patients of SSM Health and Hawai‘i Medical Service Association.
Navvis began sending rolling notices to those affected beginning on September 22, 2023. The company reported in December 2023 that the breach impacted 874,506 individuals, and a report to the Hawaii attorney general in January 2024 indicated that 462,861 of the state's residents were also affected.
If your information was exposed in the breach, attorneys want to hear from you. You may be able to start a class action lawsuit to recover compensation for loss of privacy, time spent dealing with the breach, out-of-pocket costs, and more.
A successful case could also force Navvis to ensure it takes proper steps to protect the information it was entrusted with.
