AG James: 4M New Yorkers’ Medical Records Exposed in Data Breach

YS Gold 

A massive data breach that occurred at the medical transcription company, Perry Johnson & Associates, affects nine million patients, with four million of them New York State residents. 

Northwell Health and Crouse Health have been affected by this data breach, and most individuals whose data was impacted have been notified.

“I urge all New Yorkers affected by this data breach to stay alert and take these important steps to protect themselves,” said Attorney General James. “Bad actors can use the stolen information to impersonate individuals or cause financial harm. Identity theft is a serious issue, and my office will continue to take action to keep New Yorkers safe.”

AG James urged anyone who believes they were impacted by this to take the following steps to protect themselves: Monitor your credit, consider placing a free credit freeze on your credit report, place a fraud alert on your credit report, obtain copies of your medical records, contest unrecognized medical billing, and inform your insurance company of any suspected fraud.
