There was an attack on BlueCross BlueShield insurer Anthem’s database that contained information for about 80 million people across the nation. This attack does not affect BlueCross of Minnesota members, as the companies operate independently from one another.
Hackers gained access to information such as names, dates of birth, email, Social Security numbers, employment details, incomes and street addresses.
The affected brands include Anthem Blue Cross, BlueCross and BlueShield of Georgia, Empire BlueCross BlueShield and Amerigroup.
If you are or have been a member of any of these carriers, then it is possible you may have had information stolen. If you have only ever been with BlueCross BlueShield of Minnesota they have stated your information is safe.
