Medicare Consent Form
The Medicare consent form is used when a Medicare beneficiary wishes to authorize the release of their medical information from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services to an entity or individual. This can be health information or information as it pertains to the settlement received. It should be noted that if the beneficiary wishes to release their information to more than one entity or individual, they will need to fill out a separate form for each.
