LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

StarCare discovered that one or more people broke into a StarCare/StarQuest office in the 3300 block of East Broadway.

Officials say five laptops were stolen. One of the laptops had confidential information on it that the burglar could access. That laptop was disabled to reduce the risk of the suspect accessing the information.

A box of paper files may have also been viewed by the suspect.

The following information may have been exposed:

  • Names
  • Medical Record Numbers
  • Telephone Numbers
  • Diagnosis
  • Admission and Discharge Dates
  • Dates of Birth
  • Social Security Numbers
  • Medicaid Numbers and Medicare Numbers

At this time, StarCare does not have any evidence that confidential information was misused.

Make sure to get a copy of the police report for your records. Affected clients should also give a copy of the police report to their banks, credit card companies and the credit bureaus.

StarCare is giving one year of free identity monitoring to those clients who may have been affected by this breach. This service will provide credit monitoring, identity monitoring, identity theft insurance and fraud restoration services.
