UnitedHealth Group, Optum Inc., and Change Healthcare

UnitedHealth Group experienced a ransomware attack by the hacking group BlackCat on Feb. 21, leading to severe delays in processing claims and revenue cycle services, which pushed many healthcare providers towards financial distress and potential bankruptcy. Providers have filed lawsuits for cybersecurity negligence, with claims that sensitive data is now with cybercriminals. UnitedHealth Group paid over $2 billion to impacted providers while the status of compromised data and cooperation with the cyber threat actor remains unclear.
