New Information on Anthem Data Breach
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) has confirmed that some members were affected by Anthem's data breach.
Our early report suggests information about members, including member IDs, addresses, birth dates and phone numbers, were affected. Medical and credit card information were not exposed. A small percentage of these affected BCBSIL members had their Social Security numbers exposed.
You will receive notice by mail if your data was affected. That letter will be mailed in the coming weeks.
Anthem has said it will offer 24 months of credit services to all current and former BCBSIL members affected by its data breach. These services are available now.
