Your privacy is a serious issue. That’s why we always make sure that we take important safeguards to protect the information you provide when you visit HealthCare.gov.
We have now introduced tools that allow you to easily manage some of the information we may collect from you.
Simple “on” and “off” settings
When visitors use HealthCare.gov, we use common web tools to track which websites visitors come from, which HealthCare.gov pages they visit, how long they spend, and where they visit. We collect information such as whether you exited the site. We only use it to improve our site and our outreach to the public.
However, if you prefer, you can opt out of having this information collected during your visit. Our new privacy manager makes it easy to adjust settings to your comfort level.
Simply select “On” or “Off” to track certain types of information about site visits. If you choose to opt out, you will still have access to all of HealthCare.gov, but your visits may be used to improve the site or use digital advertising to inform you of helpful information, such as deadlines. is not used.
