One of Idaho’s largest insurance companies said Friday that someone hacked its website and obtained access to the personal information of about 5,600 customers, including their names, claim payment information and codes indicating medical procedures they may have undergone.

Blue Cross of Idaho Executive Vice President Paul Zurlo said in a statement that all affected members were notified and were offered three years of complementary credit monitoring and identity protection services. The company has about 560,000 health insurance customers.

Blue Cross of Idaho said the information did not include Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, banking or credit card numbers or information about medical diagnoses.

“We take consumers’ privacy very seriously, and we are committed to keeping our members’ data secure,” Zurlo said.
