According to Anthem President and CEO Joseph Swedish, hackers obtained access to “personal information from our current and former members such as their names, birthdays, medical IDs/social security numbers, street addresses, email addresses and employment information, including income data.”

However, Swedish said on Anthem’s website  that “there is no evidence that credit card or medical information, such as claims, test results or diagnostic codes were targeted or compromised.”

    Who cares if they got your credit card or bank account numbers? If they have your birth date and SS no, they can steal your identity. That’s the real problem.

    The whole situation is bad, it took the bank maybe a day to research, and replace money taken out of my account, at the time I only had 1 account!
    I can’t even explain how I felt when I swiped my debit card at the store and was told it was declined!
    Second time someone stole my info, now I decided to pay for my anthem medical by debit card over the phone, after years of not trusting, and here we go again!!!!
