In late February, UnitedHealth Group's subsidiary Change Healthcare suffered a notable cyber incident, causing considerable disruptions within the healthcare system. This breach has impeded healthcare operations nationwide, most critically affecting the ability to submit claims and receive payments. The incident has drawn significant concern from various stakeholders within the healthcare community, raising cash flow issues among hospitals, doctors, pharmacies, and others. To mitigate the impact, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have enacted several immediate measures to assist providers and ensure continued service to patients. The incident emphasizes the critical need for enhanced cybersecurity resilience throughout the healthcare ecosystem and has prompted the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to actively engage with federal bodies to provide threat intelligence to the industry and ensure a transparent, effective response to the cyberattack.
