An employee of BCBS North Carolina accidentally sent an email that revealed the email addresses of all customers who received the email.  Customers received the email as notification of changes to their billing cycle on Wednesday, February 29.  The employee error meant that anyone who received the email could then send unwanted messages referencing BCBS or unrelated content to other customers who received the email.
