NOTICE OF CLASS ACTION AND PROPOSED SETTLEMENT

- A proposed Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit known as J. Paul McHenry v. Advent Health Partners, Inc., Case No. 3:22-cv-00287 (D. Tenn. 2022).
- This lawsuit arises out of a targeted cyber-attack causing disruption to Advent Health’s computer systems in September 2021, which resulted in the compromise of the personally identifiable information (“PII”) of 61,072 individuals (the “Data Breach”). The potentially compromised data in the Data Breach included individual’s first and last names, Social Security numbers, drivers’ license information, dates of birth, health insurance information, medical treatment information, and financial account information. Advent Health notified Settlement Class Members about the Data Breach in March 2022, at the earliest.
- All Settlement Class Members who timely submit claims can receive the following benefits from the Settlement: (1) up to $750 in reimbursement for ordinary expenses for: (a) documented out-of-pocket losses, (b) documented fees for credit reports, credit monitoring, or other identity theft insurance product purchased between September 1, 2021 and April 20, 2023, and (c) up to four (4) hours of lost time (calculated at $18/ hour) that was spent dealing with the Data Breach; and (2) reimbursement of up to $5,000.00 for documented extraordinary losses arising from proven monetary losses that were more likely than not caused by the Data Breach.
- Credit Monitoring: Settlement Class Members will also have the opportunity to enroll in three (3) years of credit monitoring services.
- Advent Health also has agreed to implement data security enhancements to better protect the private information on its computer systems.
- You are included in this Settlement as a “Settlement Class Member” if your PII was potentially compromised as a result of the cyber-attack that Advent Health discovered in September 2021, and you were sent notice of the Data Breach.
