BCBS Plans Offer Blanket ID Protection

In the wake of large hacking attacks against several of its affiliates in recent months, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association says all 36 of its affiliated health plans will begin offering free identity protection services to their members for as long as they're enrolled in insurance coverage. The services will include credit monitoring as well as fraud detection and resolution.

Although details of the extraordinary offer are still being worked out, the association says the ID protection services will be available no later than Jan. 1, 2016, to all 106 million individuals who are members of Blues plans nationwide. Individual plans will be reaching out to members, who can opt in to sign up for the services, a BCBSA spokeswoman tells Information Security Media Group.
