How Medicare protects you
Medicare works with other government agencies and with private companies to keep you safe from fraud.
You also have the right to control how your personal information is used.
You are protected from discrimination and cannot be treated differently because of your race, color, national origin, disability, age, religion, or sex. If you think you haven't been treated fairly for any of these reasons, call the Department of Health and Human Services, Office for Civil Rights for your state, or call toll-free 1-800-368-1019. TTY users, call toll-free 1-800-537-7697. For more information, visit the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website.
