$2.8M Settlement Reached by UnityPoint Health

Iowa Health System, doing business as UnityPoint Health, has reached a proposed $2.8 million settlement with the millions of patients impacted by two phishing-related data breaches in 2017 and 2018.

The settlement will provide the 1.4 million breach victims with monetary and injunctive relief, including one year of comprehensive credit monitoring and identity theft protection services and reimbursement of ordinary expenses up to $1,000 per settlement class member for costs incurred by credit monitoring and identity theft protection services.

The UnityPoint Health breach was the second largest healthcare security incident reported in 2018, impacting the health records of 1.4 million patients after the health system discovered two separate phishing attacks during the year.
