How to Opt Out
If you do not want Medicare to share your health care information, you need to do the following:
- Call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). Tell the representative that your doctor is part of an ACO and you do not want Medicare to share your health care information. TTY users should call 1-877-486-2048.
- If you change your mind in the future, call 1-800-MEDICARE and tell the representative what you have decided. Lehigh Valley Health Network Accountable Care Organization can’t communicate with Medicare on your behalf.
You are now able to select your primary doctor who you believe is most accountable for your care. Visit MyMedicare.gov to choose your doctor. Your doctor may be better able to engage you in health care decisions, which could improve your overall care management and health outcomes.
