Change Healthcare, Inc. Data Breach and System Shutdown Investigation

Lieff Cabraser is investigating Change Healthcare, Inc. on behalf of healthcare providers and patient/consumers who suffered significant and ongoing harm as a result of a vast data breach at Change.

In February 2024, Change Healthcare, Inc. experienced a forseeable ransomware attack which exposed sensitive medical records and private personal information for up to 112 million U.S. patients, as well as billing, insurance, and other sensitive data. As part of its response to the attack, Change disabled its systems nationwide, halting insurance authorizations, billing, and payments for approximately one-third of healthcare transactions in the United States. The outage created a backlog of over $14 billion in unpaid and unprocessed claims, severely impairing healthcare providers’ ability to make payroll, order supplies, and otherwise fund their operations.

Lieff Cabraser’s nationally-recognized Data Privacy practice group is interested in speaking with affected healthcare providers as well as individuals impacted by the data breach.
