Attorney General Letitia James is urging New Yorkers affected by the Change Healthcare data breach to use free credit monitoring and identity theft protection services.

In February, Change Healthcare, which handles electronic health care payments, experienced a cyberattack that exposed the personal information of millions, including many New Yorkers. UnitedHealth Group, Change Healthcare’s parent company, is offering two years of free credit monitoring and identity theft protection.

Attorney General James advises anyone who might be affected to enroll in these free services. Consumers can sign up online or by calling 1-866-262-5342. Warning signs of misuse include unexpected medical bills or errors in insurance statements. For additional concerns, contact the Attorney General’s Office at 1-800-771-7755 or file a complaint online.
