On May 26, 2023, Managed Care stated that “[o]n March 6, 2023, [Managed Care] became aware that an unauthorized party was able to access certain [Managed Care] systems.” On or around that same day, Managed Care conducted a review and determined that “an unauthorized third party was able to access certain systems and remove copies of some personal information” and that these files contained personal information.

A law suit isn’t easy, finding a good lawyer is hard, and the process can be long.

You won’t be disappointed.Thank you Joshua, Anna, the rest of the team, and Arnold Law Firm for being incredible! Like I said, I couldn’t be more grateful for the hard work and care you have put into my case.
