FRANKFORT, Ky. – Attorney General Jack Conway and nine other state attorneys general from across the country joined in a letter sent to Anthem's president and chief executive officer today, expressing concern that the company's delay in notifying those impacted by the data breach is causing unnecessary added concern to Anthem customers.

"We are asking Anthem to provide further information without unnecessary delay to those whose personal information was impacted by the data breach," said Attorney General Conway. "We believe that Anthem must provide details to those customers affected by the breach and tell them how to access the credit monitoring and identity theft protections that the company has said it will provide to them."

The attorneys general of Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island, led by the state of Connecticut, have joined the letter.
