ANONYMOUS IP ADDRESSES
We consider the protection of your health and personal information an important responsibility. Anonymous IP addresses are a technique known to be used by cyber criminals. Because of this, we do not allow access to the secure member portal for users coming to the site with anonymous IP addresses. A blocked or anonymous IP address could be caused by your network, personal VPN, or other reasons. As a result, you may want to try to access the portal using a method that doesn’t block your IP address or, if you are using a work computer, talk to your employer about how their network displays IP addresses.

USE OF TEXT
These Texting Terms and Conditions apply when you provide prior express consent to receive text messages from Carelon businesses, agents, contractors, or vendors ("us" or "we" or "our'). Text messaging from us may include one-time or recurring texts related to your benefits, programs, products, services, and tools, and/or general health information. At enrollment for recurring texting programs, we specify the frequency of texts and information on how to unsubscribe and seek assistance. In all programs, you may text “STOP” to stop messaging for that program and "HELP" for help. Text messages will be sent to your mobile number using an automatic dialing system. Message and Data rates may apply.
Participation is optional. You are electing to receive PHI via text which makes the data transmitted available to your phone carrier and potentially others. Anthem provides alternative means for communicating including phone. You understand you have these choices and have elected to opt-in for texting. Anthem does not require that you agree to receive texts for this purpose to receive treatment, payment, or for benefits enrollment and eligibility.
If you no longer want to receive text messages from us, the sole and exclusive remedy is to end enrollment in the specific texting program.
Under no circumstances will we be liable for any direct or indirect, incidental, consequential, special, exemplary, or punitive damages arising out of or in connection with use of text messaging whether or not we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
We do not guarantee the successful delivery of text messages by your wireless provider. Messages sent by text may not be delivered if the mobile device is not in range of a transmission site, or if sufficient network capacity is not available at a particular time. Even within a coverage area, factors beyond the control of wireless carriers may interfere with message delivery, including the terrain, proximity to buildings, foliage, weather, and the recipient's equipment. We will not be liable for losses or damages arising from (a) non-delivery, delayed delivery, or misdirected delivery of a text message; (b) inaccurate or incomplete content in a text message; or (c) use or reliance on the content of any text message for any purpose.
Please notify us immediately if your mobile number changes. We are not liable for any communication or transmission of information by text which happens because you did not report that your mobile number changed. Password-protecting mobile device(s) and enabling encryption, if available, is recommended.
Text messages may include protected health information (PHI). Since text messaging is unencrypted, there is a risk that this PHI could be intercepted or viewed by third parties, including others who access your device. When you choose to receive text messages from us, you do so at your own risk. Once texted, your information may no longer be regulated under HIPAA’s Privacy Rule.
If you have questions and comments, or if you believe that your confidentiality has been breached or that any of your communications have been intercepted, or you wish to notify us regarding a suspected violation of these Terms, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
