Important notice to patients about the Medical Management LLC Data Breach
To protect the privacy rights of its patients, Jefferson Hospital (“Jefferson”) is announcing that approximately 800 people treated at Jefferson’s emergency department are being notified in writing that their records may have been illegally disclosed by a former employee of Medical Management LLC (“MML”), an external medical billing company. MML provides billing services to health care providers throughout the United States, including Jefferson’s emergency department physician group, Emergency Physicians of Pittsburgh, Ltd.
An MML call center employee — since terminated — has been identified by federal law enforcement authorities as being responsible for copying personal information from the billing system over the past two years, and then disclosing that information to an unauthorized third party. The personal information that was potentially compromised includes names, dates of birth and Social Security numbers. There is no evidence that information about medical histories or treatments was disclosed.
MML has secured the services of Kroll Inc. to provide identity theft protection at no cost to affected patients for one year. MML is sending letters to patients whose information may have been illegally disclosed in this incident. Affected patients who receive letters and have any questions should contact Kroll Inc. at 1-855-330-6364, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST
