If your plan is branded by Blue Cross? Blue Cross and Blue Shield? Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia; Empire Blue Cross and Blue Shield; Amerigroup; Caremore; Unique; Healthlink; or DeCare, you are at risk - your data may have been taken by thieves.

Former Anthem customers are just as affected, the company said.

Anthem, based in Indianapolis, has hired security firm Mandiant to investigate the case. In accordance with official FAQ"No leaks of patients' diagnostic records or credit card details have been identified."

The company has also not ascertained when the databases were leaked or when the hackers managed to break into their systems. Last week, staff with high-level access to the company's systems suddenly lost access to the servers after hackers locked them out, changing their passwords.

So far, no one has claimed responsibility for the attack, and the company says it is "doing everything it can to ensure that there is no further vulnerability in its databases."
