First things first: Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield itself does not operate in Utah — the vast majority of Utahns will not be affected. However, there is some risk to consumers who are covered by Regence BlueCross BlueShield. Here’s what you need to know.
- 10,956 Utahns covered by Regence were compromised.
- These are people who traveled to one of the affected states and received medical care while there. The affected states are California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
- The stolen data dates back to 2004. If you received care in another state between 2004 and February 2015, go to www.anthemfacts.com.
- 78.8 million consumers were affected across the U.S.
- Anthem is providing two years of identity theft repair and credit monitoring to affected consumers.
- Regence will be contacting affected members over the next week by mail.
- DO NOT give personal info to anyone who contacts you over the phone or by e-mail.
- NEVER give out bank account information, PIN numbers, Social Security numbers, or other personal information to people who call unsolicited.
- Anthem has set up www.anthemfacts.com to distribute information about the hack and their efforts to remedy it.
- You can also visit Regence’s news site at news.regence.com/blog for Utah specific information.
- Consumers with specific questions can call the Anthem Facts hotline at (877) 263-7995.
