CMS has released a new resource:  Physician Compare.  Required by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the Physician Compare website : http://www.medicare.gov/find-a-doctor/provider-search.aspx?AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1 expands and updates CMS’ Healthcare Provider Directory.  Physician Compare is designed to be consumer friendly and help all patients­ locate health professionals in their communities.  By simply choosing a zip code and specialty, the website provides contact information for offices, whether the professional speaks a language other than English, and the professional’s gender and educational background.  The tool can also help Medicare beneficiaries identify which physicians participate in the Medicare program.
