Premera Targeted by Cyberattack
March 17, 2015: Today, we are announcing that Premera Blue Cross has been the target of a sophisticated cyberattack. The security of our members’ personal information, as well as the information of those with whom we do business, is a top priority for Premera, and we regret any concern this incident may cause. Additional information is available at www.premeraupdate.com.
For ongoing updates, we encourage you and your employer clients to visit our employer website. Members can be directed to premeranews.com/anthem as a resource for their questions. Updates to these resources will occur regularly as the situation evolves.
Our newly improved Find a Doctor tool (provider search engine) now offers members better cost information, smarter features, and deeper quality reviews once logged in. Check out these new features by logging in or talking to your sales representative today.
As business renews, beginning January 1, 2015, members will no longer be financially liable if contracted providers fail to obtain a required prior authorization. This affects Individual and Small Group Metallic plans and Large Group fully-insured plans.
Individual and small groups
Midsized and large groups
This change is designed to improve compliance with the prior authorization program and make coverage more predictable for members.
Virtual care gives members immediate and convenient access to care whenever and wherever they need it (except in Idaho).
Members who are covered (as plans enroll or renew beginning January 1, 2015) receive care virtually from their own doctor or from a doctor at our national provider service, Teladoc®. Covered members can get care via phone call, online video, or other online media at least as easily as they walk into an office and get care face to face. See our virtual care flyer!
Our new virtual care solution is getting a lot of media coverage. Check out an article in the Seattle Times, Herald Business Journal, or State of Reform.
Premera has expanded both the Heritage Signature and Heritage Prime networks. Look at our hospital list to see which facilities are in these networks for January.
Premera Blue Cross is pleased to offer Individual accident, critical illness, and life coverage through our new relationship with Washington National Insurance Company. Your clients will receive supplemental protection against accidental injuries with Accident Assure. Critical illness coverage for cancer, heart, stroke, and kidney conditions is available with Critical Solutions.
