CMS Privacy Home Page
Welcome to CMS Privacy!
We take privacy very seriously.
Every day, millions of Americans trust CMS with their personal information. You or a family member may get health coverage from Medicare, Medicaid, or the Health Insurance Marketplace.
We’re committed to keeping your personal information safe with the highest level of privacy protections possible.
How CMS Protects Privacy
CMS Privacy follows fair information practices, like transparency and only sharing information with people who need to know. To protect your privacy, we’ll tell you before we collect any personal information we need to run our health care programs, and only use it for that purpose.
CMS’ Senior Official for Privacy is responsible for our privacy protections following federal laws, regulations, and policies for keeping personal information safe.
