ANTHEM INSURANCE CONSUMER UPDATE

Please review this important consumer update impacting Anthem insurance customers.

 

One of Connecticut's largest health insurers, Anthem, announced Wednesday that the company's IT systems were hacked in a major data breach that could affect up to 80 million people nationally. Anthem currently covers 1.2 million people in Connecticut. Anthem immediately reached out to the FBI to start an ongoing investigation. Information stolen in the breach included data about current and former customers: names, birthdays, medical IDs, Social Security numbers, street addresses, e-mail address, employment information and some income data. It is not believed that any credit card or medical records have been compromised.

For information about obtaining credit reports and other advice for consumers visit www.ct.gov/anthemadvice.

Change their online passwords and to check their credit reports for suspicious activity.

 

Report any suspicious activity on their credit report or other financial accounts to law enforcement authorities immediately.
