A $12.5 million settlement has been reached to resolve claims that 21st Century Oncology failed to prevent a 2016 data breach. The settlement provides cash payments and other benefits.
The settlement benefits individuals who received a notice from 21st Century Oncology in March 2016 about the data breach.
In March 2016, 21st Century Oncology – a cancer treatment center – announced that they had been targeted in a data breach. The breach, which reportedly occurred in October 2015, compromised the records of 2.2 million patients. Several sensitive pieces of data were compromised in the breach, including names, Social Security numbers, physicians’ names, medical diagnoses, treatment information, and insurance information.
As a result, numerous consumers took legal action against the company, arguing that the treatment center failed to protect their sensitive data through reasonable cybersecurity measures. Eventually, these claims were consolidated into an MDL through which numerous plaintiffs could have their cases tried at the same time.
21st Century Oncology has not admitted any wrongdoing but has agreed to pay $12.5 million to resolve the claims against them. The settlement provides several forms of relief including two years of credit monitoring, up to $300 for lost time, and up to $10,000 for fraud and other out-of-pocket expenses.
In order to benefit from the settlement, Class Members must file a valid claim form by May 10, 2021. In order to recover higher payments, claims must include documentation of lost time, fraud, and/or out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of the data breach.
The deadline for exclusion and objection from the data breach class action settlement is March 9, 2021. The final approval hearing is scheduled for June 15, 2021.
