Vision and dental insurer Dominion National is notifying an unknown number of members of a data security incident that may have caused personal information to be exposed.

On April 24, Dominion National learned an unauthorized third party may have accessed some of its computer services. The hacker may have had access since Aug. 25, 2010.

The health insurer has cleaned its servers since learning of the security incident. There is no evidence that the information has been accessed, acquired or misused.

Data stored on the computer servers included current and former member enrollment and demographic information. Members' addresses, email addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, taxpayer ID numbers, bank account and routing numbers, member ID numbers, group numbers, and subscriber numbers may have been affected.

Dominion National began alerting members on June 21. The health insurer has set up a response line for affected individuals.
