medical information
 

"but likely not medical information."

Why is this still "likely", there is a settlement and we still do not know if medical data was breached.

out-of-pocket cost
"Class members who claim out-of-pocket costs may receive compensation of $36 to $50."

Settlement
78.8 million individuals impacted and only $115 Million, this sounds not that much.
