Click here to view the original post.

“Members who may have been impacted by the cyber attack against us should be aware of scam email campaigns targeting current and former members.  These scams, designed to capture personal information (known as “phishing”) are designed to appear as if they are from our company and the emails include a “click here” link for credit monitoring. Our company DID NOT send these emails.

  • DO NOT click on any links in email.
  • DO NOT reply to the email or reach out to the senders in any way.
  • DO NOT supply any information on the website that may open, if you clicked on a link in email.
  • DO NOT open any attachments that arrive with email.

We are not calling members regarding the cyber attack and are not asking for credit card information or social security numbers over the phone.”

Attention Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Customers: Data Compromise Alert

As one of the largest policy writers for Anthem Insurance in the Midwest, Schultheis Insurance wants to notify any affected individuals that a very sophisticated IT attack on Anthem’s systems has compromised insured parties’ personal information and data.

According to Anthem’s announcement, the compromised information may include “names, birthdays, medical IDs/social security numbers, street addresses, email addresses and employment information, including income data.” As far as is known at this time, neither credit card nor medical information has been compromised.

At Schultheis, we’re very concerned about the data breach. However, it is important to note that our information systems are completely separate from Anthem’s, and we are currently working with Anthem to uncover any affected customers along with steps to protect them.

Anthem has set up a website to allow those persons possibly affected by the breach to obtain more information: Current or former members of Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield are also encouraged to call (877) 263-7995 to speak directly to an Anthem customer service representative.

Schultheis Insurance will continue to closely monitor the extent of the data compromise, and keep our customers posted with information as it becomes available.
