Cyberattack Leaves Patients Seeking Prescriptions In Lurch

Cyberattacks can shut down banking procedures, online communications, corporation systems and more.

And now they can threaten lives by infiltrating a system allowing the dispensing of prescriptions to patients.

The Business Insider reported the attack this week on was UnitedHealth’s Change Healthcare system and the American Hospital Association was urging healthcare facilities to disconnect from the system.

Change Healthcare itself said a number of its systems and services were hit by the cyberattack starting Wednesday.

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

The company said the problems were from “a suspected nation-state associated cybersecurity threat actor.”

The corporation delivers prescription processing services and is part of United Health’s Optum division, working with more than 67,000 pharmacies.

The company said it was “experiencing a cyber security issue” and it was working on it.

“Once we became aware of the outside threat, in the interest of protecting our partners and patients, we took immediate action to disconnect our systems to prevent further impact,” it reported.

One report, in the Daily Mail, bluntly labeled the situation, as an attack from a “foreign nation.”

Another published report from Fox said a restoration of services was expected imminently.

But it said the nature and origin of the attack were unclear.

One pharmacy chain said the problem was not with getting the prescriptions, but with billing them to insurance plans.

“If you can wait a day or so to pick up your RX that would be great. If you need it today we can do our best to accommodate individual needs,” the chain said.

CVS officials told Fox its own systems were unaffected.

“We are aware that Change Healthcare is experiencing a network interruption that is impacting certain business operations, as well as the operations of other companies nationally,” an official. “There is no indication that CVS Health’s systems have been compromised.”

WND SPECIAL REPORT – “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS”: From the Biden administration’s enthusiastic support for amputating body parts of troubled children, to its obsession with bringing as many millions of illegal aliens, terrorists and Chinese soldiers as possible into America, it is increasingly clear that many of this nation’s current leaders are, to put it plainly, stark raving mad.

Indeed, psychiatric experts are finally documenting how the symptom profiles of scary conditions like “Borderline Personality Disorder” and “Narcissistic Personality Disorder” PERFECTLY MATCH today’s top leaders.

One groundbreaking peer-reviewed study published in 2023 documents how left-wing extremism is closely associated with “psychopathic tendencies.” Likewise, retired psychiatrist Brad Lyles, M.D., explains how “one way of understanding the increasingly outlandish beliefs and behaviors of the left is through the lens of Borderline Personality Disorder.” And one of America’s top forensic psychiatrists, Lyle Rossiter, M.D., described Barack Obama’s mental state as “Malignant Narcissistic Personality Disorder.”

Consider a typical description of sociopathy: “Sociopaths are often well-liked because of their charm and high charisma, but they do not usually care about other people. They think mainly of themselves and often blame others for the things that they do. They have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly. They seldom feel guilt or learn from punishments.” Remind you of anyone?

From Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to their presidential Cabinet – including Attorney General Merrick Garland, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra – all of these people “have a complete disregard for rules and lie constantly.”

But it’s not just Democrat leaders. Multiple surveys now show how rank-and-file Democrats are TWICE as likely to be diagnosed with a mental disorder as Republicans – from depression to bipolar disorder to schizophrenia to narcissistic personality disorder. All this and much more is stunningly laid out in the March edition of WND’s critically acclaimed Whistleblower magazine, “IT’S TRUMP VS. SWAMP PSYCHOPATHS.” Don’t miss it – you will see the whole political-cultural-spiritual war raging in the U.S.A. in a whole new light.
