Anthem-Blue Cross/Blue Shield Data Breach


Attention all Ameren/MO employees regarding your Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield Medical Insurance (Jan. 2016)

Due to the recent data breach, Anthem will be offering credit monitoring and identity protection services free of charge. We strongly urge you to take advantage of these services if needed. Anthem has created a website – www.anthemfacts.com, and a hotline, 1-877-263-7995, for its members to call for more information, and has shared the attached Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) that further explains the cyberattack. Additionally, Anthem has indicated that they will individually notify members whose information has been accessed.

In the interim, Ameren’s cybersecurity department is recommending the following precautions:

1. Change your password; we strongly recommend that you change your Anthem account password.

2. Use unique passwords; as a precaution, it is strongly recommended that you change your password on any other sites where you have used the same password and/or user ID.

3. Be alert for phishing attempts; be alert for phishing attempts. Protect yourself against non-legitimate “phishing” attempts by going directly to Anthem.com to change your password rather than clicking on any links you receive in email.

4. Monitor your accounts; regularly review your accounts for suspicious activity.

TRI STAR ACCOUNT UPDATE

 

Please see the important information below for updating your Tri-Star online account access information. Tri-Star sent us a notice (linked here) that they are increasing their security protocols for account holders who access their online system. 


 

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING YOUR TRI-STAR ACCOUNT

Do you have an active account with Tri-Star Systems? If so, to continue to protect the security of your information, Tri-Star is upgrading the way you access your account on the internet. New login and password security will be in place by the end of the first quarter this year.

Participant New Online Account Access, Effective April 1

  • You will no longer be allowed to use your social security number to login to your account. You will instead use the email address you have on file with Tri-Star.
  • You and only you, the participant, can contact Tri-Star customer service to establish or change the email address used for online access and account communications. See “Contact Tri-Star” below.
  • Your password must meet a new minimum 8 character secure format. If a password does not meet the new minimum secure format, you will be prompted to establish a new password. Customer service representatives will not be able to view, establish, reset or communicate your password.

If you do not know or need to establish a new secure Tri-Star password, after March 31st:

  • On the internet, go to Tri-Star login.
  • Click on “I forgot my password or need a new password.” After you respond to the prompts, Tri-Star’s system will generate an email including a time-sensitive link used to reset your password. Follow the directions in that email to reset your password and gain access to your account.
  • If you use an email address that does not match what is used by Tri-Star, you do not pass initial or follow up identity verification or an account is not located, you will receive an email notice of a failed login attempt and will be directed to contact Tri-Star customer service.

What Do I Need to Do Now, Before April 1?

First, Login to your Tri-Star account and then:

1. Update your email address to your preferred email address, for accessing your Tri-Star account online and where you want to receive Tri-Star communications (click on “Change Email Address”).

2. Report a new secure password (click on “Change Password”). Passwords must be at least 8 characters in length and must include a combination of at least one upper case and one lower case letter, one number and one special character.
