You may have received in the mail, or via e-mail, a notice regarding a legal settlement reached with Anthem. We have had phone calls inquiring if this notice was authentic or if it was spam mail. The notice is a legitimate one. Anthem reached a settlement in June to resolve a class action lawsuit relating to the 2015 cyber-attack against the company.
For individuals whose information was impacted by the cyber-attack, which was announced by Anthem in February 2015, the settlement provides for an additional two years of credit monitoring and identity protection services. Alternatively, members who already have credit monitoring services may submit a claim to receive alternative compensation for up to $36 instead of credit services.
