Anthem Security Breach Update
Feb. 5, 2015 -- Connecticut residents who were Blue Cross Blue Shield insurer Anthem clients over the last five years will receive two years of free credit monitoring and identity protection services in the aftermath of a massive cyber attack on the nation's second largest health insurer.

According to Anthem, hackers obtained access to personal information from our current and former members such as their names, birthdays, medical IDs/social security numbers, street addresses, email addresses and employment information, including income data.
Anthem has set up a website at www.anthemfacts.com to answer customer questions. Customers can also call Anthem’s special toll-free number 877-263-7995.
