Coming Soon to Your Mailbox

Circulating via email today:
Anthem Data Breach – Update

In response to the cyber attack on Anthem on January 29, 2015, Anthem began mailing notification letters yesterday...

Anthem will release approximately 1.5 million notice letters per day for the next 11 weeks, as there are an estimated 80 million former and current members.  Letters will be sent in priority order – first to those impacted members with Social Security number breach, followed by HCID breach, then to other types of data breach such as date of birth, address, etc. 

Former and current UC Anthem members who are concerned that they have not yet received an email or USPS notice from Anthem should be advised to assume they are impacted and referred to the Anthem website below.

Prior UC Anthem members (those enrolled between 2004 and 2014 in the UC-sponsored Anthem Blue Cross PPO, PLUS, Lumenos, Core, the Medicare Core, Medicare PPO, and High Option plans) as well as current members of UC Student Health plans administered by Anthem who have questions should be directed to Anthem’s dedicated website ( for the most up-to-date information, or call Anthem at 1-877-263-7995.  

Something to look forward to!
