Notification of hack from AR student health insurer



Little Rock, Arkansas – Students from Arkansas may have had their personal and health information compromised due to a software package’s vulnerability.

In response to a zero-day vulnerability discovered in the MOVEit Transfer software, UnitedHealthcare Student Resources revealed on Friday that data had been viewed and copies removed on one of their servers on May 27.

According to a statement from UnitedHealthcare, the information could have included a combination of names, dates of birth, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, plan identification numbers, policy information, student identification numbers, claims information, including claim numbers, provider information, dates of service, diagnosis codes, prescription information, and claims financial information.

The business emphasized that not all data elements for all persons were involved.

According to executives for UnitedHealthcare, anyone whose data was exposed are being informed and will be given free credit monitoring and identity protection services. The business claimed it was not aware of any information being misused, but it advises people affected to purchase a credit report and frequently check their bank, credit card, and other records for any unusual activity.

Officials advised anyone who notices anything strange to alert their health plan. If you have any queries, a toll-free number at 1-866-341-4262 is manned Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Central Standard Time.

The business claimed in a statement that it has strengthened data security in order to avoid similar breaches in the future.
