State Attorney General Kamala Harris today announced a settlement with Anthem Blue Cross over allegations that the California health insurer failed to protect the personal information of members.

A lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court today along with the settlement, alleged that Anthem Blue Cross printed Social Security numbers on letters mailed to more than 33,000 of its Medicare Supplement and Medicare Part D subscribers between April 2011 and March 2012.
