The sensitive personal data of over 1.8 million patients who obtained medical equipment from Apria Healthcare, LLC has been compromised. Now, customers' names and Social Security numbers, as well as their personal, medical, health insurance, and financial information, may be in the hands of criminals who plan to use it to steal their identities.

On May 22, 2023, Apria Healthcare filed a notice of data breach that impacted patients nationwide with the Attorney General of Maine.

However, it was not until almost four years from the date of the breach that Apria provided official notice to victims.
