Many of you are aware of the cyber attack that has breached Anthem's computer systems. It has been widely publicized in newspapers, TV and radio news programs and web news venues. Some of you may have received an email from Anthem describing the cyber attack and what personal information may have been compromised.
Although the Local 1014 Health Plan processes LA County Fire Fighter claims, we contract with Anthem Blue Cross for the Prudent Buyer Preferred Provider Organization (PPO). As such, much of our claim data is shared with Anthem.
Local 1014 Health Plan is in contact with Anthem to determine what impact the cyber attack has had on our members. Anthem indicates that personal information such as names, birthdays, medical IDs/social security numbers, street addresses, email addresses and employment information, including income data may have been compromised. At this time Anthem says there is no evidence that credit card or medical information (such as claims, test results or diagnostic codes) were compromised.
In addition, Local 1014 does not provide some of this information to Anthem.... specifically credit card and income and employment data.
Anthem will individually notify any Local 1014 member whose information has been accessed. They will provide credit monitoring and identity protection services free of charge to those who have been affected.
Anthem has created a dedicated website -AnthemFacts.com - where members can view FAQ's. As they learn more, the website will be updated.
Anthem has also established a dedicated toll-free number that you can call with questions related to the cyber attack. That number is: (877) 263-7995.
You may also contact Local 1014’s Member Services at: (800) 660-1014 or (310) 639-1014.
As we learn more we will update this message.
