Salud Family Health Data Breach
Salud Family Health Inc., a Colorado-based healthcare provider, experienced a cyber security incident that compromised Salud’s network on or before September 5, 2023. The incident resulted in sensitive and confidential patient and employee information such as names, Social Security number, driver’s license number or state identification card number, financial account information, credit card number, passport number, medical treatment and diagnosis information, health insurance information, biometric data, username and password, and other possible personal identifiers being exposed by an unauthorized agent. The data breach affected approximately 427,546 individuals, potentially putting them at risk of fraud or suspicious activity.
Shub & Johns filed a class action lawsuit against Salud in February 2023 in the United States Court for the District of Colorado. On July 28, 2023, Shub & Johns filed a Consolidated Amended Complaint in the 19th District Court for the State of Colorado in Weld County.
Approval of the Salud Settlement
Parties in the case reached a potential settlement, and Plaintiff’s counsel attended a hearing on the motion for Preliminary Approval in early August 2023 where the Court granted preliminary approval of a settlement. Shub & Johns, along with Co-Counsel and the Settlement Administrator, began contacting individuals affected by the breach to notify them of the Settlement.
On November 22, 2023, the Honorable Judge Todd Taylor granted Final Approval of the Settlement. The deadline for class members affected by the breach to file a claim is December 12, 2023, and claimants still have until this date to submit a claim for potential remedy, and can access the Settlement site here.
The case is Alexander, et al., v. Salud Family Health Inc., No. 2023CV030580.
