Walgreens says 180 stores affected by potential patient data breach

Walgreens has sent letters to customers telling them that stores nationwide were affected by a potential breach of patient data between May 26 and June 5 and their prescription information may have been compromised.

The company said that between those dates, thieves stole filled prescriptions and paper records with health information, potentially exposing data including customer names and ages, medication names and dosages, prescription numbers and prescriber names, health plan names and group numbers, and vaccination information, as well as patients’ addresses, phone numbers and email addresses. 

A Walgreens spokesperson told The Philadelphia Inquirer that about 180 stores were affected. 

Walgreens said credit card numbers, banking information and Social Security numbers were not affected.
