Anthem Data Breach

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts is aware that Anthem, Inc. was the target of a very sophisticated external cyber-attack, currently under FBI investigation. We are diligently working with Anthem and the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association to gather more information about the scope of this issue and how it might impact your employees.

The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association consists of 37 independently operated Blue Cross and Blue Shield member companies. Anthem and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts are separate and distinct companies.

The protection of our members' privacy and personal information is our top priority. We make every effort to ensure that all personal information we maintain is secure and safe.

In the coming weeks, should the investigation find that any of our members are affected, we will notify you and formally communicate with them in writing and take appropriate, timely action. Free credit monitoring and identity protection services will be provided if it is determined that any of our members have been affected.

This is a complex investigation, and we are committed to keeping you informed.
