Murphy Law Firm is investigating claims on behalf of all individuals whose personal and confidential information was potentially compromised in the data breach at 90 Degree Benefits, Inc. (“90 Degree Benefits”). 90 Degree Benefits is a health benefits company that designs health plans and administers patient benefits, serving more than 525,000 members nationwide. In February 2022, 90 Degree Benefits experienced suspicious activity on its systems. Following a forensic investigation, 90 Degree Benefits determined that cybercriminals had gained unauthorized access to its systems and had accessed confidential and personal information about at least 163,483 patients whose information was stored on 90 Degree Benefits’ systems. While 90 Degree Benefits has largely refused to provide details as to what patient information was accessed by cybercriminals, 90 Degree Benefits has confirmed that patients’ Social Security numbers were exposed in the data breach. Based on the nature of the information 90 Degree Benefits collects, it can further be assumed that the following information was potentially acquired by cybercriminals:
Social Security numbers
Dates of birth
Health insurance information
As a result of the 90 Degree Benefits’ data breach, these individuals’ personal and highly sensitive information may be in the hands of cybercriminals who can place the information for sale on the dark web or use the information to perpetrate identity fraud.
Murphy Law Firm is evaluating legal options, including a potential class action lawsuit, to recover damages for individuals who were affected by the data breach.
