L.A Care Health Plan - 27/02/2014
Los Angeles Care Health Plan notified customers of a data breach to their system. Customers were informed that a processing error occured in their system that may have involved accidental disclosure of their information. They were made aware of an issue in their payment portal that allowed one member to see another members name, address and member identification number. Upon learning about the breach, they temporarily disabled the payment portal and reassigned new membership ID's to those members affected. The disclosures took place from January 22, 2014 through January 24, 2014. The breach is being blamed on a manual processing error which has now been corrected.They are stating that the information was limited to member name, address and member identification number and did not include any other information, such as Social Security number, Driver's License number, or financial account numbers. The company has requested those affected either email L.A Care's Privacy Office at PrivacyOfficer@lacare.org or by telephone 1-855-270-2327 or a letter to 1055 West 7th Street, 10th Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90017.
