About 1,000 members SummaCare affected in data breach | #itsecurity | #infosec


Health insurance provider SummaCare is notifying about 1,100 of its members that their information may have been involved in a data security breach.

The Akron-based insurer, which is owned by Summa Health, said it recently investigated and addressed a data security incident involving about 2% of its 61,000 members.

The insurer said it does not believe there was any misuse of information but suggests affected members look at their statements and contact SummaCare if there are any treatments not received.

SummaCare said it became aware Feb. 8 of a misconfiguration in one of its computer systems, which allowed certain documents to be accessible via the internet between Nov. 19 and Feb. 7. The documents contained some members’ names, health insurance ID numbers, patient account numbers, dates of service, provider names and limited treatment information
