Anthem Subsidiaries Face Missouri Lawsuit over Data Breach

A lawsuit in Missouri seeking class-action status accuses three insurance agencies of failing to safeguard sensitive consumer data from hackers who recently breached health insurer Anthem Inc.'s computer networks. A lawsuit first filed in February in St. Louis County on behalf of Jill Noble, a Richmond, Mo., woman, was amended April 14, 2015 to add three plaintiffs who allege personal data stolen during the breach in December or January is responsible for fraudulent tax returns filed in their name, costing them a combined $6,753 in refunds. The Missouri suit alleges that compromised Anthem database information including names, employment details and Social Security numbers of nearly 100 million consumers "is now in the hands of thieves." The 10-count lawsuit, seeking unspecified damages, estimates that 1.5 million Missourians could be part of the lawsuit, if a judge signs off on the litigation as a class action. Anthem, which recently changed its name from WellPoint, runs Blue Cross Blue Shield plans in more than a dozen states, including California, New York and Ohio. Lawsuits similar to the Missouri one that names Anthem subsidiaries RightChoice Managed Care Inc., HMO Missouri Inc. and Healthy Alliance Life Insurance Company Inc. have been filed in other states, including neighboring Kansas.
