It has been a month and still we continue to navigate the aftermath of the recent cyberattack on Change Healthcare. According to this report on TechTarget, the attack compromised the platform’s ability to process over 15 billion claims annually.  

Payers face difficulties in receiving and processing claims leaving providers in a challenging situation. Many providers are scrambling to settle their bills, while others are left pondering the viability of keeping their practices running. Recently, Dr. Christine Meyer in her WSJ podcast mentions that she even contemplated leveraging her home equity to avert closure of her practice.
