KY Medicaid Clients Informed of Security Breach
By AP
FRANKFORT, KY - Kentucky officials are informing more than 1,000 Medicaid clients of a computer security breach that many have resulted in private information being released.
 
The Cabinet for Health and Family Services says an employee of a subcontractor responded to a telephone computer scam that allowed unauthorized remote access to a computer that contained information on Medicaid clients. The statement says there isn't any evidence that the Medicaid database was accessed.
 
Rodney Murphy, executive director of the CHFS Office of Administrative and Technology Services, says the scam was most likely directed at getting money from the worker, but other possibilities can't be ruled out.
 
Free credit monitoring for one year is being offered to those who were affected.
