Warning to Active & Retired Members Regarding the Recent Cyber Security Breach of Anthem/Blue Cross

March 24, 2015

As we previously reported, members’ confidential and personal information may have been compromised as a result of the cyber-attack on Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield. As a result, Anthem contracted with a company called “All Clear ID” to provide identify-theft protection for those who chose to sign up.

The DEA has learned that members are receiving telephone calls from individuals claiming to be from “All Clear ID” and are requesting social security numbers and other personal information. Members are warned not to divulge any personal information over the telephone to any caller identifying his/herself from “All Clear ID.” The company has informed us that they will never call members over the telephone to request information.
