Blue Shield of California Announces Identity Protection Services For Members

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (May 3, 2016) --- Blue Shield of California teamed up with AllClear ID to offer its members identity protection services, including Identity Repair and Credit Monitoring, at no cost.

Beginning today, members can access AllClear Identity Repair at any time with no enrollment required. If repair service is needed, members can call 855-904-5733 and a representative will help restore their identity. For added protection, members can opt-in to receive AllClear ID Credit Monitoring at blueshieldca.allclearid.com. No payment information is required.

Credit Monitoring provides extra protection that specifically monitors new credit accounts opened in a members’ name. When this occurs, AllClear sends an alert to the affected member. The service includes credit monitoring, a $1 million identity theft insurance policy and child protection for members under 18 years old.

This offer is available to members and their covered dependents for as long as they have a Blue Shield of California policy in effect. Due to current laws and regulations, members receiving insurance through Federal Employee Programs (FEP), Medicare and Medicare Part D are not eligible to receive this service. In addition, members who receive only ancillary products, such as dental insurance, or other non-health products are also not eligible. This offer is separate from any credit monitoring that is required by law or offered in the event of a data breach.

Safeguarding member information is a priority at Blue Shield, and these services enhance the existing safety and security measures already in place.
