If You Were Notified Of A Data Incident Involving Magellan Health, Inc. In 2020, You May Be Eligible For Benefits From A Class Action Settlement.
This is not a solicitation from a lawyer, junk mail, or an advertisement. A Court authorized this notice.
A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit, titled Griffey et al. v. Magellan Health, Incorporated, Case No. CV-20-01282-PHX-MTL (“Lawsuit”), filed in the United States District Court for the District of Arizona.
This Lawsuit arises out of a 2020 phishing incident, involving Magellan (the “Data Incident”). Plaintiffs allege that the Data Incident potentially resulted in unauthorized access by a third party to a subset of data on Magellan’s corporate server, which may have included the personally identifiable information (“PII”) and protected health information (“PHI”) of Magellan’s current and former employees and consumers. Magellan disagrees with Plaintiffs’ claims and denies any wrongdoing.
The Settlement Class consists of two groups – those who were notified that their Social Security numbers were potentially accessed in the Data Incident (the Common Fund Settlement Class), and those who were notified that their Social Security numbers were not involved in the Data Incident the Claims-Made Settlement Class). The settlement benefits available depend upon which group you are in.
Common-Fund Settlement Class Members may submit a Claim for the following benefits from the settlement: (1) $100 cash payment, adjusted up or down depending upon the number of claims approved, and in lieu of any other benefits, or (2) reimbursement for up to $5,000 for (a) documented out-of-pocket expenses, and (b) up to five (5) hours of lost time spent dealing with the Data Incident (at $25 per hour). You must submit a Claim Form to receive these benefits.
Claims-Made Settlement Class Members may submit a Claim for the following benefits from the settlement: (1) reimbursement for up to $750 for (a) documented out-of-pocket expenses and (b) reimbursement for up to three (3) hours of lost time spent dealing with the Data Incident (at $20 per hour); and (2) a 12-month subscription for identity-theft protection services You must submit a Claim Form to receive these benefits.
You are included in this settlement as a Settlement Class Member if you were notified that your PII/PHI may have been impacted in the Data Incident.
Your legal rights are affected regardless of whether you do or do not act. Read the notice carefully.
The Court in charge of this case must still decide whether to approve the settlement, including Class Counsel’s request for attorneys’ fees and service awards for the Class Representatives. No settlement benefits will be provided until the Court approves the settlement, and it becomes Final.
