Because you are a member of the Brethren Medical Plan, which uses Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois as its health insurance carrier, we wanted you to be aware of the announcement below from BCBS of Illinois regarding the Anthem data breach that was disclosed on Feb. 4.


Brethren Medical Plan members are not Anthem members, but the national BCBS network serves our members through local networks which could include Anthem in the following States -- California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin.


As we receive more details we will keep you informed through our Insurance Alert e-newsletter.


It is not necessary for you to take any action at this time, but if you have any questions or concerns about the data breach, please contact BCBSIL directly at the number listed on the back of your insurance ID card.
