Anthem: Over 600,000 in NH affected by data hack
MANCHESTER - Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Hampshire says the database recently broken into by hackers included personal information for more than 600,000 consumers in New Hampshire.
Anthem, the nation's second-largest health insurer, discovered last month that hackers broke into a database storing information for about 80 million people. On Tuesday, the company's New Hampshire spokesman said that total includes 667,866 people in New Hampshire. That number includes current members, former members dating back to 2004, and members of other Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans who live in New Hampshire or sought access to health care in the state.
Anthem is offering two years of free credit monitoring, identity theft insurance and other services.
