The company announced on Friday that hackers gained access to a small number of Social Security numbers, as well as information about patients' medical conditions.
Hackers Access Personal Data Of SCAN Health Plan Members
Hackers gained access earlier this year to personal data about current and former members of Long Beach-based SCAN Health Plan, the company said Friday. In some cases the intruders were able to view information about individuals' medical conditions and medication, and "a small number" of people's Social Security numbers may have been compromised, it said. Company spokesman Ross Goldberg said he doesn't know how many people's information was accessed by the hackers. SCAN has 170,000 members, he said, adding that the intruders also gained access to personal data about non-members who had provided information to company sales representatives. (O'Neill, 8/26)
