BlueCross and BlueShield of Tennessee will offer free identity theft consultation and restoration services to an additional 169,719 members identified as being affected by an October breach of data after hard drives containing protected health information on at least 521,761 members were stolen (see story).

The additional members are family members of 131,909 BCBS of Tennessee subscribers whose name, address, Blues ID number, date of birth and/or diagnosis were on one of the hard drives. The plan soon will send a letter to the subscribers notifying them of the breach and offering identity theft services to them and family members associated with the subscriber's ID number.
