SGT is currently investigating potential class action data breach claims against PharMerica Corporation (“PharMerica”) and BrightSpring Health Services, Inc., (“BrightSpring Health”) following a data breach that exposed the sensitive personal information and health information of almost 6 million PharMerica pharmacy customers (the "Data Breach"). PharMerica is one of the largest providers of pharmacy services in the United States, operating more than 2,500 facilities and over 3,100 pharmacy and healthcare programs.
According to PharMerica, on March 14, 2023, PharMerica and its parent company, BrightSpring Health learned of suspicious activity on their computer network. Upon discovering the incident, PharMerica promptly began an internal investigation and engaged cybersecurity experts to investigate and secure its computer systems. The investigation determined that an unknown third party accessed PharMerica computer systems from March 12-13, 2023, and that certain personal information may have been obtained as a part of the incident.
PharMerica has disclosed that the following information of impacted individuals has been compromised:
- Dates of birth;
- Social Security numbers;
- Medication lists; and
- Health insurance information
According to reports, a ransomware gang named “Money Message” has claimed responsibility for PharMerica & BrightSpring Data Breach. Money Message claims to have the records of millions of PharMerica and BrightSpring Health customerss – including Social Security numbers from 400 databases. One news organization has confirmed that the health insurance information included private health information such as allergies, Medicare numbers, and diagnoses that could be damaging to patients if leaked – such as details about alcohol, drug, and mental health-related illnesses.
SGT believes PharMerica and BrightSpring Health Data Breach victims may have claims against PharMerica and BrightSpring Health as they are now at an increased risk of identity theft or other identity fraud-related crimes.
