Cohen Milstein is investigating a potential class action lawsuit against Banner Health related to a data breach that may have affected 3.7 million customers. As reported by the Company on August 3, 2016,  the data breach initially targeted personal information of customers on systems that process credit card payments for food and beverages purchased at Banner’s locations but the breach is reported to have subsequently expanded to include patient and health plan information.  According to Banner Health, the patient and health information may have included names, birthdates, addresses, physicians’ names, dates of service, claims information, and possibly health insurance information and social security numbers.

If you have received a letter from Banner Health regarding this data breach and would like to consult with an attorney, please email shandmaker@cohenmilstein.com.  In addition, because your sensitive information may be at risk, you should contact a credit reporting agency immediately to ensure the security of your identity
