What Is Medicare Authorization Form?

In 1966, the Social Security Administration launched Medicare, a nation-based health insurance program. Although it is one of hundreds of health insurance programs, Medicare’s main goal is to administer health insurance to individuals over the age of 65, individuals with disabilities, and individuals suffering from certain diseases. As with many health insurances, Medicare is responsible for covering some of the costs associated with medical care and maintains medical records of the individuals participating in the program. A Medicare Authorization Form is used to release personal medical information, such as your Medicare health insurance claims. Often this form is used to acquire medical records before insurance settlement talks begin. Your records help determine the amount of monetary compensation you may be able to receive.
