(Reuters) – The American Pharmacists Association on Friday said that many pharmacies throughout America could not transmit insurance claims for their patients after UnitedHealth Group’s Change Healthcare reported a hack earlier this week.

“This is resulting in delays in getting prescriptions filled,” the association said in a statement.

The disruptions from the attack were expected to last at least through Friday, Change Healthcare, the healthcare billing and data systems provider, said on its status page.
