Anthem, formerly known as Wellpoint, has faced a rough patch. The Indianapolis-based company’s database was penetrated by a hacker attack that was revealed in early 2015, affecting 78.8 million people. The attack exposed names, birthdays, Social Security numbers and other personal data, though there’s still no evidence that any medical data or financial information was breached. Anthem, the second-biggest health insurer in the U.S., has been working to contain the breach and inform affected patients while facing an onslaught of lawsuits related to the incursion. Despite the security breach, Anthem’s enrollment growth has continued higher. In the first three months this year, the group added 1 million more patients to reach a total of 38.5 million members. The growing member base combined with a lower medical-cost trend has boosted earnings in recent months, which CEO Joseph Swedish expects to continue through the rest of the year.
