Community Health Systems Settlement Agreement

Forty-eight states and the District of Columbia announced that they had made a $60 million comparison with C.R. Bard about misleading marketing claims related to surgical networked products. On October 8, 2020, New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal (AG) announced that his office had entered into a settlement agreement with Community Health Systems, Inc. (CHS), resulting from an investigation into a privacy breach in 2014, that revealed personal information to approximately 6.1 million patients, including 45,000 New Jersey residents. This comes after chS agreed to pay $2.3 million for ALLEGED HIPAA violations by the Civil Rights Office. The complaint alleged that chS failed to implement and maintain adequate security for the personal data it collected and maintained, that it failed to ensure the security and confidentiality of the stored information, and that it did not authorize the unauthorized disclosure of protected health information inconsistent with HIPAA. On Tuesday, the Norfolk County Retirement System in New York and the publicly traded health giant informed the U.S. District Court for the Central District of Tennessee of their intention to move in. The parties have informed the Tribunal that they are in the process of preparing a settlement agreement and expect the documents to be filed by January 21. .
