Potential Release of Protected Health Information
The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing contracts with DXC Technology to serve as its fiscal agent for Department programs such as Health First Colorado (Colorado’s Medicaid program).
On May 10, 2017, DXC Technology conducted a proactive security review of its Colorado interChange provider portal. The provider portal is used by Health First Colorado providers to submit and manage claims for services to Health First Colorado members. The security review determined that an internet hyperlink to twelve Health First Colorado billing reports containing non-financial, protected health information of 822 individuals, was potentially accessible between March 1, 2017 and May 10, 2017. DXC Technology has taken the appropriate steps to mitigate the situation and notify all potentially impacted individuals.
