Stanford and Blue Shield of California Monitoring Possible Impact of Recent Anthem, Inc. Cyberattack

Yellow road sign labelled "FYI" against blue sky background

A recent cyberattack against Anthem, Inc. appears to have minimal effect on Stanford employees. Blue Shield of California administers our EPO, PPO and HDHP medical plans and is a separate business entity from Anthem, Inc. with its own technology systems.

Information from Blue Shield has identified that some employees and covered dependents who accessed care outside of California could be affected, due to various collaborative agreements between Blue Plans throughout the country.

Blue Shield is working to understand the scope of this issue and will inform us and university members if their data was part of the breach. We will also keep you updated as we receive more information.

For questions or concerns regarding your Blue Shield EPO, PPO and HDHP plan, please contact Blue Shield member services at 800-873-3605 or visit
