Letters are in the process of reaching 78.8 million people affected by the massive security breach, an Anthem official said recently (those who provided their email address have already received notice). The infiltration also affected many former Anthem members, dating back to 2004. It impacted affiliated plans and people in independent Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans who received care in areas serviced by Anthem.

The breach has triggered investigations by regulators. Anthem’s response to the breach has been praised by the White House and the FBI. These efforts include setting up an informational website, as well as a hotline to help consumers. “With tens of millions of people who need to be notified, we are working as quickly as possible to provide personal notification,” said Anthem Blue Cross spokesman Darrel Ng. Working with different regulators in different states along with the large scope of the attack complicated the process of notifying the people affected, he said. “In the interim, any Anthem member can already access credit monitoring and identity theft repair services.
