One of the nation’s largest providers of blood testing just announced a widespread data breach of financial data, credit card information, Social Security numbers and medical data, and it is certain to be the subject of many lawsuits throughout the country.
On June 3, 2019, Quest Diagnostics reported that about 11.9 million patients are affected after an “unauthorized user” apparently gained access in mid-May to its billing collections vendor, American Medical Collection Agency (AMCA). AMCA provides services to Optum360, a Quest billing contractor. AMCA reported the scope of the breach May 31.
