Valley Hope Association announced that following an internal investigation, it has determined that cyber criminals may have accessed the personal information of patients. The personal information hackers may have accessed includes patient names, addresses, medication/prescription information, social security numbers, financial account information, driver’s licenses or state identification card numbers, claim/billing information, date of birth, health insurance information, medical record number, and doctor’s name.
In the course of its duties, Valley Hope Association is trusted with the personal information of patients. Unfortunately, Valley Hope Association has breached that trust.
The personal information that hackers may have stolen could be used for a variety of crimes, including credit card fraud, phone or utilities fraud, banking or finance fraud, or government fraud. Moreover, a person whose personal information has been compromised may not see the full extent of the identity theft or fraud for years.
Disclosure of personal information is unlawful, and the attorneys at Finkelstein, Blankinship, Frei-Pearson & Garber, LLP have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of victims of such disclosures. If you have been notified by Valley Hope Association that your data may have been exposed, please contact us immediately to discuss your legal options.
