Understanding the Orsini Healthcare Data Breach

In early January 2024, Orsini Pharmaceutical Services, a specialty pharmacy service provider, experienced a data breach that potentially compromised sensitive personal information. As a company that has been serving the biotechnology manufacturing sector since 1987, Orsini is well-regarded for its patient service solutions. To learn more about the company, you can visit their website at Orsini Pharmaceutical Services.

The breach specifically occurred between January 8 and January 10, 2024. During this period, unauthorized access to a single employee's email account was detected, leading to an immediate investigation. The types of consumer information that may have been exposed include:

  • Names
  • Social Security numbers
  • Addresses
  • Dates of birth
  • Medical record numbers
  • Health insurance information
  • Diagnoses
  • Prescription information

Upon discovering the breach, Orsini took swift action to secure the affected account and engaged a third-party forensic investigation firm to assess the extent of the breach. Although there was no conclusive evidence that the attacker's intent was to steal patient information, the possibility could not be entirely ruled out.

In response to the incident, Orsini has offered affected individuals a complimentary one-year membership to Equifax Complete™ Premier, a service that provides credit monitoring and fraud alerts. Full details of this offer and instructions on how to activate the membership can be found within the Notice to Consumers on the California Attorney General's website.

Orsini has expressed deep regret for any inconvenience or concern caused by the breach and has reaffirmed its commitment to data security by implementing additional safeguards and technical security measures to protect its systems.

Steps to Take if You Are Affected

If you suspect that your information has been compromised in this breach, Orsini advises the following steps:

  1. Review statements from healthcare providers and health insurance plans for any services you did not receive and report discrepancies immediately.
  2. Be vigilant by monitoring your credit reports and accounts for unauthorized activity.
  3. Consider taking advantage of the complimentary credit monitoring service provided by Orsini.
  4. Place a fraud alert or security freeze on your credit files to make it more difficult for identity thieves to open new accounts in your name.

For additional guidance on protecting your personal information, you can visit the Federal Trade Commission's identity theft website.
