Recent reports suggest that a data breach could have impacted more than 200,000 individuals on Medicaid. CareSource, the entity that manages software for the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA), suffered an IT security incident in May 2023 that may have exposed personal information of 212,193 Indiana Medicaid members.

CareSource notified the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights (HHS) of a data breach involving the company’s use of the MOVEit file transfer application. The MOVEit cyberattack impacted hundreds of companies and millions of individuals. In a data breach notice sent to individuals, CareSource explains that the incident resulted in an unauthorized party being able to access consumers’ sensitive information.

CareSource is a nonprofit, multi-state health plan based out of Dayton, Ohio. CareSource provides health care coverage for Medicaid consumers as well as other insurance plan offerings available on the Health Insurance Marketplace.

The information that could have been compromised may include the following:

  • Names

  • Social Security numbers
  • Dates of birth
  • Gender
  • Medical conditions
  • Diagnoses
  • Medications
  • Allergies
  • Health conditions
