The hack came to light on Tuesday, just a day after Quest Diagnostics announced 12 million patients were affected by a data breach, USA Today reported.

More actions may be taken once LabCorp receives more information about the AMCA data breach, the company said.

LabCorp said a data breach at a third-party company exposed millions of customer files from August 2018 to March, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

The compromised personal data "could include first and last name, date of birth, address, phone" and "credit card or bank account information", according to LabCorp's SEC filing. The company confirmed that some of the information that was hacked included social security numbers, medical, and financial data.

According to the Identity Theft Resource Center, almost 447 million records were exposed in 1,244 breaches a year ago.

"Once again, a breach that results from third party vulnerabilities", Colin Bastable, CEO of Lucy Security said.

Sen. Menendez has consistently led the response to massive corporate data breaches, including at Target, eBay, Home Depot, Equifax, and others. In an effort to soothe customer concerns, LabCorp will offer identify protection and credit monitoring services for 2 years.

The company also said it has insurance coverage in place for potential liabilities and costs related to the breach, however, it is limited in the amount and subject to a deductible. At the time, Quest said it was taking steps to prevent similar incidents in the future, saying in a statement that it was "working with a leading cybersecurity firm to assist in investigation and further evaluating the company's systems".

"In response to initial notification of the AMCA Incident, LabCorp ceased sending new collection requests to AMCA and stopped AMCA from continuing to work on any pending collection requests involving LabCorp consumers", the SEC notice states.
