Community Health Plan of Washington Breach: Not much information here, but what appears to be a Medicaid managed care plan suffered some sort of data breach that potentially exposed information about approximately 400,000 people.

UPDATE: Here's a little more information, via Justin Shafer (@JShafer817 on Twitter)*.  Although you never know with Justin, I suspect he might have found an unprotected FTP server with CHPW's patient data on it.  That could be what got the entity to investigate, and to provide the breach notice.

*Trigger Warning.
