Aetna Hit With More Penalties for Two Breaches

October 15, 2018 Mayuri Kumar

Health insurer Aetna is still paying the price for two 2017 privacy breaches involving mailings that potentially exposed HIV and cardiac condition information about thousands of individuals.

After a multistate investigation, Aetna last week signed financial settlement agreements with Washington, D.C., for $175,000, Connecticut for $100,000 and New Jersey for $365,000. The amount of another new settlement with the state of Washington was undisclosed.
