NOTICE TO USER ABOUT THE COLLECTION AND USE OF MEDICARE INFORMATION (PRIVACY ACT STATEMENT)

FOR YOUR INFORMATION ONLY

"THIS INFORMATION IS BEING COLLECTED UNDER CONTRACT WITH THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES, FOR USE BY THE MEDICARE PROGRAM."

The Social Security Act mandates the collection of information to be used to set up your Medicare file. The purpose of collecting this information is to properly pay medical insurance benefits to you or on your behalf.

Information may be given to health insurance providers and suppliers of services (and their authorized billing agents) directly or through fiscal intermediaries or carriers, for administration of Title XVIII; and to an individual or organization for research evaluation, or epidemiological project related to the prevention of disease or disability, or the restoration or maintenance of health.

The identification number we are using to set up your file is your Medicare Health Insurance Number. While furnishing the information on the enclosed form is voluntary, the Medicare program may not be able to make accurate claims payment when the requested information is not available in its records.

Public Law 100-503, the Computer Matching and Privacy Protection Act of 1988, permits the government to verify information by way of computer matches. Anyone who knowingly and willfully makes or causes to be made a false statement or representation of a material fact for use in determining a right to payment under the Social Security Act commits a crime punishable under Federal law by fine, imprisonment, or both.
