PracticeMax is a business management company that provides services such as billing, consulting, registration, and other solutions to hospitals, insurance companies, employers, and physician offices. On May 1, 2021, PracticeMax experienced suspicious activity on its systems. Following a forensic investigation, PracticeMax determined that cybercriminals had gained unauthorized access to its systems between April 17, 2021 and May 5, 2021. Based on the investigation, PracticeMax confirmed that cybercriminals may have accessed confidential and personal information of at least 154,929 patients whose information was stored on PracticeMax’s systems. According to PracticeMax, the personal information potentially accessed or acquired by cybercriminals includes:
Social Security numbers

Health insurance information
As a result of the PracticeMax’s 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.
