Anthem Cyberattack Update

Participants who would like to enroll in the two years of free credit monitoring and credit theft repair services being offered by Anthem can now go to the Identity Protection Services section of www.anthemfacts.com for instructions on how to enroll.

Additionally, Anthem has clarified that anyone who has previously supplied an email address to Anthem and signed up for email notifications from Anthem will receive information regarding the cyberattack via email. This updates Anthem's previous warning regarding reports of scam "phishing" emails that may appear to be from Anthem.

Participants should continue to use caution when opening emails, clicking on links, and opening attachments that appear to be from Anthem.

It is not yet known if DGA–Participant data was part of the Anthem data breach.  However, as a service to Health Plan participants, Anthem is allowing all participants to sign up for these identity protection services.

Anthem expects to begin sending written notice via mail to those affected by the data breach in the coming weeks.

Beware of Anthem-related Email Scams

There have been reports of scam “phishing” emails that appear to be from Anthem. These emails could include offers for credit monitoring. If your personal information was affected as a result of the breach, you will receive a letter from Anthem.  Anthem will not contact you through email.

If you receive a suspicious email that appears to be from Anthem, do not open it, respond to it, nor click on any links or attachments it includes.

The Anthem Data Breach

On February 4, Anthem, one of the country’s largest providers of health insurance, revealed that the personal information of millions of its customers was the target of a cyberattack.

The DGA–Producer Health Plan contracts with Anthem for use of their provider network. The Health Plan also uses Anthem to pay provider claims. Health Plan participants are not insured by Anthem, so it is not yet known if DGA–PHP participant data was part of the Anthem breach.
