Some Medicare beneficiaries may be contacted as part of an ongoing study called the Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS).
  • The federal government contracts with the University of Chicago, a respected social science research organization, to conduct the study known as the nonpartisan and objective research organization (NORC).
  • Usually, we advise not to respond to unsolicited requests, but this is an exception to our warning that CMS will not contact Medicare beneficiaries directly.
  • If you are are contacted and want to verify that it is legitimate, please visit the MCBS Respondent Page or contact NORC toll-free at 1 (844) 777-2151.
