Empire / Anthem Website Breach Update 2/13/15

IMPORTANT UPDATE ON THE ANTHEM CYBER HACK
There is updated info on the EMHP website ( www.emhp.org/home) ref the recent cyber-attack involving Anthem, parent company of Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield (EBCBS). Info on the website includes frequently asked questions and information on enrolling for two years of free credit monitoring and identity theft repair services. I encourage everyone to visit the EMHP website and review this information.
I would also like to emphasis that EBCBS will NOT be reaching out to anyone via email or phone. If or when they identify individuals or groups that have been compromised they will be notifying those individuals via US mail. If you receive an email or phone call alleging to be from Anthem or EBCBS looking for info it is a phishing scam. Do Not Respond.
Fraternally,
