Delaware’s Department of Insurance announced yesterday that 650 residents and five companies located within the state were impacted by a 2018 data breach of BenefitMall, a third-party HR services administrator for health insurance companies.
It was originally back on Jan. 4, 2019, that BenefitMall, aka Centerstone Insurance and Financial Services, publicly disclosed a “data security incident” that took place between June 2018 and October 11. According to a company press release, the breach compromised employee email accounts containing customers’ names, addresses, Social Security numbers, birth dates, bank account numbers and insurance premium payment information.
The Department of Insurance advised local customers of Highmark BCBS, Aetna, Emblem Health, Humana and UnitedHealth to keep an eye out for personal breach notifications in the mail. The agency also recommended that consumers accept any free credit and identity monitoring services that these insurance companies may offer.
