Anthem Data Breach
Last night Anthem revealed that it was the victim of a major security breach affecting millions of current and former subscribers. As Anthem explains at its website, AnthemFacts.com, personal information has been compromised. At this point, however, it does not appear that subscriber medical data was accessed. Anthem’s investigation continues and affected individuals will be notified directly by Anthem. Many individuals have already received emails. Anthem has indicated that it will be offering credit monitoring to those whose information was accessed. Additional information is available at the Anthem website.
For those of you who have self-insured medical plans using Anthem network, questions we receive from concerned individuals will be referred to Anthem.
