Paubox HIPAA Email Breach

On March 12, 2018, RoxSan Pharmacy, Inc. submitted a HIPAA Email Breach to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Located in Beverly Hills, California, the RoxSan Pharmacy email breach affected 1049 individuals’ protected health information.

RoxSan Pharmacy, Inc. is classified as a Healthcare Provider.

According to their press release:

“The incident involved the transmission of a data file to a business associate on January 20, 2015. The data file containing the unsecured information was transmitted to only one individual, a business associate in the legal field, with which RoxSan maintains a Business Associate Agreement. However, since the data file was transmitted for non-health-related reasons, the transmission is considered a breach. The unsecured information includes records dated between April 2015 and August 2015, and includes prescription information, patient identification numbers, drug information, physician names, and insurance information. The data file did not contain patient names or addresses or other personal identification information, and RoxSan has not received any indication that the information has been accessed or used by any unauthorized individual.”
