I don't use Anthem, thought I was safe

Well fuck.

If my BCBS customer associate is as helpful as usual, then they will refuse to tell me if I'm on the list (from the article, I logically would be) or offer any credit monitoring service.

My company just did our annual HIPAA certification training, where it was iterated over and over how bad a Protected Health Information disclosure could be. Using BIG companies and their "fines" as precedent, though, makes it appear like HIPAA has all the teeth of the DARE program.
