BlueCross and BlueShield of Tennessee, as of April 2, has now identified 998,422 current and former members as being at risk following the theft of 57 hard drives last October, the company announced in an update.

That's an increase from a mid-March figure of 521,761 members, as the plan has substantially completed forensic work to identify members at high or medium risk and now is focusing on identifying those at low risk--447,549 so far. Notification letters for these Tier 1, or low-risk members, started going out April 5.
