Credit monitoring and identity theft repair are offered at no charge to persons affected by the Anthem breach for a 24 month period beginning this month (February 2015). There is no deadline for signing up for this service. Nevertheless, it is easier to fix any breach of personal accounts when the event is detected shortly after it occurs rather than when significant damage has already been done, so early enrollment in this security program is encouraged.

Services offered by AllClear ID include: ID repair, ID theft monitoring, Credit monitoring, Secure Alerts, Lost wallet protection, $1million theft insurance, and Child ID protection. The cost of all of these services will be covered by Anthem.
