Medicare Rights and Protections

Your Medicare rights and protections

You have special rights and protections with Medicare. Although we work hard to keep your privacy and identity safe, it’s important that you understand these rights, too.
This week, National Consumer Protection Week is the perfect time to take a few minutes to brush up on your Medicare rights.
Regardless of how you get Medicare, your rights:
  • Protect you when you get health care
  • Ensure you get the health care services that the law says you can get
  • Protect you against unethical practices
  • Protect your privacy
Concerned about the quality of care you’ve received from a Medicare provider? Think your care wasn’t covered but should’ve been? Visit to get help with your rights & protections.
