How does Medicare protect my personal information?

The Privacy Act protects the personal information about you that Medicare uses. This law requires that all federal agencies, and their contractors, follow certain rules to protect any personal information which they collect, use, or disclose. Medicare managed care plans are not required to comply with the Privacy Act, but your personal information is still protected. Medicare managed care plan materials (e.g., Evidence of Coverage) describe your privacy rights. You should contact your managed care plan directly for more information.
