Anthem Data Breach

To all employees covered by Anthem PPO, HMO, EPO, and Dental Net:

A few weeks ago, Aerospace was notified of a serious data breach at Anthem. They immediately took measures to identify and contain the scope of the breach. They also offered identity repair services and credit-monitoring services for two years to all affected subscribers and dependents; these services are available to both current members and former members from the past ten years. Employees and their dependents are encouraged to sign up for the credit-monitoring services, which are being made available at no cost.

The following is an update from Anthem on the data breach:

  • The FBI investigation of the cyberattack continues.
  • For the most up-to-date information, visit http://AnthemFacts.com.
  • Anthem has mailed more than 25 million letters to impacted members, representing 32% of the 78.8 million letters being mailed. It will be several weeks before the mailings are completed.
  • Not every Aerospace member was impacted by the cyberattack; however, any Aerospace member that has been enrolled with Anthem can sign up for identity-theft repair and credit-monitoring services offered through AllClear ID. Details regarding how to enroll can be found on http://AnthemFacts.com.
  • You do not need to wait to receive a letter from Anthem to sign up for credit protection.
  • To date, there is no evidence that information accessed during the breach has impacted any Anthem members.
