Latest MedicineNet News

Reporting to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, LabCorp said its vendor, American Medical Collection Agency (AMCA,), appears to have been compromised in about 7.7 million patient records. That's the same company that was involved in the exposure of Quest's records, USA Today reported.

The breach occurred between Aug. 1, 2018, and March 30, 2019. Data that might have been exposed includes names, addresses, dates of birth and balance information, credit card numbers and bank account information.

LabCorp said that patient test results, Social Security Numbers, and insurance information were not stored at AMCA.

AMCA told USA Today that it took its web payments page down, and: "We hired a third-party external forensics firm to investigate any potential security breach in our systems, migrated our web payments portal services to a third-party vendor, and retained additional experts to advise on, and implement, steps to increase our systems' security."
