Why do insurance companies have our Social Security number?

The government issues Social Security numbers for one purpose, Social Security. So when I hear that giant insurance company Anthem had millions of Social Security numbers stolen I asked myself, “Why do they have our Social Security numbers in the first place?”

I think they should pass a law prohibiting anyone from using Social Security numbers for anything not related to Social Security.
