Anthem Cyber-Attack Notifications

Earlier this month, Anthem announced that it was the target of a very sophisticated external cyber-attack. Anthem continues to work closely with federal authorities in their investigation, and we are diligently analyzing data provided by Anthem to understand the extent of the impact on our members.

Anthem reports that they will begin to notify affected members via email as early as next week and will begin sending affected member letters in the weeks to follow.

If you have any impacted employees, we will send you a notification letter.

While only some of our members have been impacted, any concerned members can visit to learn how to enroll in two years of free credit monitoring and identity theft repair services. Members do not have to wait to receive a notification letter from Anthem to access these services and can enroll at any time during the 24-month coverage period. (Full details are available on the website.)

Members who do not have access to the Internet or who prefer telephone service may call 877-263-7995 for assistance. Phone lines will be open Monday through Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. ET. Spanish-speaking members may access information at or receive assistance in Spanish at 877-263-7995.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this with Anthem.
