Medicare needs your permission to share your private info

By law, Medicare must have your written permission to use or give out your personal medical information. If you want to allow Medicare to give out your personal health information to someone other than you, (including family members) you need to let Medicare know in writing.

For a copy of the appropriate form, go to, click on “Forms, Help and Resources” and download the “Medicare Authorization to Disclose Personal Health Information Form.”
Instructions and mailing address are included with the form.
