What Is Comprehensive Health Services data breach Class Action Settlement?
Acuity, formerly known as Comprehensive Health Services, agreed to a class action settlement to resolve claims surrounding a 2022 data breach. The name of the case is Arbuthnot, et al. v. Acuity – CHS LLC f/k/a Comprehensive Health Services LLC, Case No. 6:22-cv-00658-PGB-DCI, in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
What Is This Class Action All About?
According to the data breach class action lawsuit, Acuity failed to protect consumer information from unauthorized access. As a result, 106,910 individuals allegedly had their personal identifying information stolen by hackers.
Comprehensive Health Services hasn’t admitted any wrongdoing but agreed to pay an undisclosed sum to resolve the data breach class action lawsuit.
Under the terms of the settlement, class members can receive up to $500 for out-of-pocket expenses including bank fees, credit expenses and three hours of lost time at a rate of $20 per hour.
Class members who experienced identity theft as a result of the data breach can receive higher payments of up to $3,500 for documented expenses related to their identity theft.
All class members, even those who did not experience identity theft or out-of-pocket expenses as a result of the data breach, can receive two years of free credit monitoring services under the settlement.
