Helpful Information at Your Fingertips
Healthcare is complex. Whether you’re looking for a doctor for yourself or a loved one, making a decision can be difficult and confusing. That’s why it’s so important to have accurate and reliable information.
Medicare World’s Find a Doctor Tool puts up-to-date information about doctors at your fingertips any time you need it. Find a Doctor profile pages list general information about doctors and groups, like practice locations and phone numbers. The Find a Doctor Tool also has performance information available on some doctors and group profile pages. Performance information can show how well clinicians and groups provide patients with the best quality of care.
Always Check The Information
We update general information on Find a Doctor pages often.
But because information can change at any time, you should always contact the doctor or group to verify general information, including practice location(s), whether they’re accepting new patients, and if they accept the Medicare-approved payment amounts.
History of Find a Doctor Tool
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) created Physician Compare in December 2010 as required by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010.
The Medicare and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) provided additional guidance for the Physician Compare website. We continually work to be sure the website is easy to use and includes the most useful information to help you find clinicians to meet your healthcare needs. Performance scores on Physician Compare help you make informed decisions and also encourage clinicians to provide you the best care.
Medicare By State
Medicare is regulated by the federal government. However, private insurance companies are allowed to offer various parts of Medicare, and these plans can differ from state to state.
