(WRDW/WAGT) -- Days after news broke about a data breach at Quest Diagnostics, we're learning of another breach at LabCorp.
According to the company, the breach of billing collection agency American Medical Collection Agency (AMCA) also hit them between Aug. 1, 2018, and March 30, 2019.
The information exposed could include patients' first and last name, date of birth, address, phone, date of service, provider, and balance information.
“AMCA’s affected system also included credit card or bank account information that was provided by the consumer to AMCA (for those who sought to pay their balance),” the filing with the u.S. Securities and Exchange Commission reads. “LabCorp provided no ordered test, laboratory results, or diagnostic information to AMCA. AMCA has advised LabCorp that Social Security Numbers and insurance identification information are not stored or maintained for LabCorp consumers.”
LabCorp says they are in the process of sending out notices to about 200,000 patients whose credit card or bank account information may have been part of the breach.
