Case Summary: 

Aetna, Inc., Aetna Life Insurance Company, and Aetna Specialty Pharmacy, LLC have agreed to settle a class action that alleges two instances of potential breaches of privacy. First, in July 2017, the complaint claims, Aetna improperly disclosed protected health information (PHI) to third parties, such as legal counsel and a settlement administrator, in connection with the settlement of legal claims. Second, the complaint claims that Aetna sent out a benefit notice in an envelope with a large glassine window that enabled information about medications to be read from the outside of the envelope. Over 13,000 individuals supposedly experienced the first breach; over 11,000 supposedly experienced the second as well.
