Aetna to Pay Up & Enhance Privacy Protections After Breach

Aetna is settling with the New York Attorney General's office over a privacy breach.

Aetna will pay over $1 million dollars and will have to enhance privacy protections after what the A.G.'s office calls carelessness with the privacy of almost 2500 New Yorkers. 

The case involves the HIV status of individuals becoming visible or potentially visible through a mailing in July of 2017 in which oversize transparent address windows revealed text confirming some people's HIV status.
