“Anthem Agrees to $115 Million Settlement Over Data Breach,” Bloomberg
June 23, 2017
Anthem Inc. agreed to pay $115 million to resolve consumer claims over a 2015 cyber-attack that compromised data on 78.8 million people, marking what attorneys in the case called the largest data-breach settlement in history.
The proposed accord, which would end class-action lawsuits filed in several states, requires approval from a federal judge in San Jose, California. Anthem sells coverage under the Blue Cross and Blue Shield brand in 14 states.
