CareCentrix Class Action Settlement

United States District Court for the District of Kansas, Case No. 2:16-cv-02372-KGG



CareCentrix, Inc.

E-mail Security Incident Class Action Settlement

All current or former employees of CareCentrix, Inc. whose identifying information was disclosed in a security incident announced by CareCentrix in March 2016 could be entitled to payment under a proposed class action settlement.

  • This case involves a putative class action against CareCentrix relating to a data security breach affecting current and former CareCentrix employees. On February 24, 2016, an employee of CareCentrix was targeted by an e-mail scam called “spoofing”—whereby an e-mail header is manipulated so that the e-mail message appears to have originated from someone other than the actual source. In this case, the spoofed e-mail appeared to come from a member of CareCentrix’s executive team and asked for employees’ W-2 Forms. Because the CareCentrix employee wrongly believed the e-mail to contain a valid request from a senior executive, the employee replied by sending the W-2 Forms of 1,986 current and former CareCentrix employees to the unknown third party.
  • The proposed Settlement provides for payment for reimbursement of Out-Of-Pocket losses to eligible Class Members who submit a valid Claim Form with supporting documentation by January 29, 2018.
  • Your legal rights are affected whether you act or don't act.

If you opt-out, you may not make a claim for benefits under the settlement.

Object: You may object to the settlement by writing to the Settlement Administrator and explaining why you don’t think the settlement should be approved.

Go To The Hearing: You have the right to ask to speak in Court about the fairness of the Settlement. You can do this only if you don’t exclude yourself and if you submit a written objection to the Settlement with the Court before the date of the hearing regarding final approval of the Settlement.

Do Nothing: If you do nothing, you will not be eligible to receive Credit Monitoring Services or reimbursement for Out-Of-Pocket Losses. You will be eligible to access identity restoration services through Experian. If the Settlement becomes final, you will give up your rights to sue separately CareCentrix relating to the E-mail Security Incident.
