Use Medicare.gov’s Care Compare to find and compare health care providers.
In early September, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released Care Compare on Medicare.gov, which streamlines the eight original health care compare tools. The eight original compare tools – like Nursing Home Compare, Hospital Compare, Physician Compare – will be retired on December 1st. CMS urges consumers and providers to:
- Use Care Compare on Medicare.gov and encourage people with Medicare and their caregivers to start using it, too. Go to Medicare.gov and choose “Find care”.
- Update any links to the eight original care tools on your public-facing websites so they’ll direct your audiences to Care Compare.
With just one click on Care Compare, easy-to-understand information about nursing homes, hospitals, doctors, and other health care providers is available.
