Federal law protects the privacy and security of your medical information.The group of doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers in the ACO working together on your behalf will be able to read our medical records, along with other office staff authorized to help coordinate your care. Each of your health care providers won’t only know about the health issues that they’ve treated, they’ll have a more complete picture of your health by sharing information with your other health care providers.

Contact your doctor’s office for more information about how they protect your medical information, or call 1-800-MEDICARE to learn more about how Medicare protects your medical information.
