Community Care Physicians patients may have some private info compromised.

BST, an accounting firm working with CCP, blames a computer virus from last December.


Medical records and social security numbers were not affected. However, the breach could have exposed first and last names, medical record numbers, date of birth, CPT codes, and insurance descriptions.

A review of the data breach was completed on February 5, 2020.

BST sent the following statement to NewsChannel 13:

BST provided notification to individuals out of an abundance of caution, including furnishing those who may have been impacted with identity monitoring at no cost. We deeply regret any inconvenience to those who may have been affected. Unfortunately, data security incidents have become increasingly common and are impacting organizations both large and small, public and private. We are committed to ensuring the security of all data under our care, and encourage all to remain vigilant about the growing occurrence of cyber threats.
