American Medical Collection Agency (AMCA), a third-party collections group that works with a number of health care entities in the U.S., revealed earlier this week that it had experienced a data breach of its customer payment site. To date, it is known that as many as 19.6 million records may have been affected due to AMCA’s relationships with Quest Diagnostics and LabCorp. The information accessed by unauthorized entities varies, but it may include name, address, date of birth, Social Security Number, financial information, and medical information. Both LabCorp and Quest have confirmed that no test results were compromised.
AMCA continues to investigate the incident and has released little information at this time. Once more information is available, AFSPA will make it available to our members. Please look for updates on our Facebook page and website.
