In email from Anthem, some good news:

"Anthem, Inc., has reached a settlement to resolve the multi-district class action litigation relating to the 2015 cyber attack against the company. The settlement did not include any finding of wrongdoing, and Anthem did not admit any wrongdoing or that any individuals were harmed as a result of the cyber attack."


On the other hand:

"Equifax says 2.5M additional individuals potentially victimized during data breach."

Finally, remember that explicit "If you like your plan..." promise? Well - and you'll want to sit down for this - that guy lied:

"In the face of significant uncertainty surrounding the future direction of U.S. health care policy, Premier Health Plan will discontinue Premier HealthOne Off-Exchange plans on December 31, 2017. This follows Premier Health Plan's June 2017 announcement regarding the 2018 exit from the On-Exchange marketplace"
