AvMed Breach Affects 1.2 Million Florida Residents

A data breach in December 2009 at AvMed Health Plans included the theft of the Social Security numbers, names, addresses, birth dates, and health records of both current and former AvMed subscribers. Two laptop computers containing the records were stolen from the company’s Gainesville office in December.

360,000 breach victims were notified in February and on June 3 the company announced that it is notifying an additional 860,000 breach victims. AvMed is offering breach victims two years of free credit monitoring service with the Debix Identity Protection Network. Breach victims requiring more information can visit the AvMed website contact Debix at 1-877-441-3004 (TTY: 877-442-8633). Breach victims that want the Debix coverage must register.


Got an opinion? Keep it clean. Don't ask open-ended questions, like "Does the Pope belong to a coven?" Make it pertinent.
