In December 2023, HealthAlliance filed a notice of data breach after the insurer discovering that an unauthorized party had gained access to their network. If you receive a data breach notification from HealthAlliance or another company it is important to understand the increased risks of fraud and medical identity theft.

The data theft incident, originally discovered in October 2023, affected computer systems within the Westchester Medical Center Health Network. HealthAlliance Hospital in Kingston along with Margaretville Hospital and Mountainside Residential Care Center were forced to shut down their IT systems.

The letters sent to individuals will contain more specific information based on each case, but the stolen personal data could include the following: name, address, date of birth, Social Security number, medical information, health insurance information, and financial information.

HealthAlliance has sent out data breach letters to individuals affected by the recent data security incident. The company operates out of Champaign, Illinois and offers Medicare plans, individual plans, and employer/group plans.
