2. LabCorp

Number Of Records Exposed: 7.7 Million

Millions of LabCorp customers had data stored on the web payment page of the American Medical Collection Agency (AMCA) that was breached between Aug. 1, 2018, and March 30, 2019. AMCA is an external collection agency used by LabCorp and other healthcare companies.

Information exposed could include first and last name, date of birth, address, phone, date of service, provider, balance information, as well as credit card or bank account information provided by the consumer to AMCA. The 200,000 LabCorp consumers whose credit card or bank account information may have been accessed will receive identity protection and credit monitoring services for 24 months.

In response to the breach, LabCorp ceased sending new collection requests to AMCA and stopped AMCA from continuing to work on pending collection requests involving LabCorp consumers. LabCorp never provided ordered test, laboratory results, or diagnostic information to AMCA, and AMCA said it didn't store or maintain Social Security numbers or insurance identification information for LabCorp clients.
