More Information on the Santa Clara Family Health Plan Data Breach
Around March 30, 2023, Santa Clara Family Health Plan (“SCFHP”) learned that confidential consumer information in its possession was subject to unauthorized access. The incident reportedly resulted in an unauthorized party gaining access to consumers’ protected health information, which may include medical records including past and current medications, Social Security numbers, and health insurance information. After confirming that consumer data was exposed, SCFHP began sending out data breach notification letters to all individuals who were impacted by the recent incident.
If you received a notice of data breach from Santa Clara Family Health Plan, you may have a legal claim.

Our firm is a nationally recognized leader in class action litigation and arbitration of claims brought by consumers alleging privacy invasions, manufacturing defects, and false advertising. We are committed to advancing and protecting the rights of every citizen to control their own personal information and be free of hidden or undisclosed tracking.
In previous cases, we have successfully applied privacy laws on behalf of our clients to lead litigation that held websites and other companies accountable for alleged privacy violations. For example, in the Lenovo spyware litigation, Girard Sharp and its co-lead counsel negotiated a favorable settlement after the court certified a nationwide class of computer purchasers whose online activities were surreptitiously monitored by pre-installed software that degraded the computers’ performance, operating continuously in the background as it analyzed browsing activity and injected ads into visited webpages.
As lead counsel in the OPM data breach litigation, we obtained a reversal of the dismissal of claims brought on behalf of 22 million federal employees and job applicants whose highly personal facts were hacked and stolen. We then negotiated a settlement that provides for minimum $700 payments to class members with compensable loss. Similarly, in Corona v. Sony Pictures Entertainment, we represented Sony employees in the wake of a cyberattack attributed to North Korea as retaliation for the parody film The Interview. Girard Sharp and its co-lead counsel secured a settlement that fully reimbursed class members’ actual losses and provided extended credit monitoring—a structure adopted in many subsequent data breach settlements.
