Anthem Reports a Major Data Breach

Anthem Inc., the nation’s second largest health insurer, disclosed Wednesday that hackers gained access to their servers and stole Social Security numbers and other personal data of former and present members.

Anthem will individually notify current and former members whose information has been accessed. Anthem will provide credit monitoring and identity protection services to those who have been affected.

A dedicated website has been created – www.anthemfacts.com – to provide answers to frequently asked questions. This website will be updated on a continual basis. A dedicated toll-free number (1-877-263-7995) has also been established so current and previous members can call if they have questions related to this incident.

Anthem is working diligently to identify all impacted current and former members, and will be mailing letters to them in the coming weeks. This letter will advise those affected of protections being offered as well as any next steps.
