Indiana (WOWO) – Medicaid members may receive a letter about a possible data breach involving personal information.

DXC Technology, the fiscal agent for the Indiana Health Coverage Program (IHCP), says an internet hyperlink containing patient information was accessible between February and May of this year, according to The Indy Channel.

The information included patient’s names, Medicaid ID numbers, names and addresses of healthcare providers, patient numbers, procedure codes, dates of service, and payment amounts.

No financial information, social security numbers or patient addresses were released.

The Family and Social Services Administration and DXC do not believe any patient information was stolen, but letters are being sent out as a precaution.

If you were affected, you will be receiving a letter from the company responsible for maintaining the state’s Medicaid software, along with a year of free credit monitoring, according to 44 News.
