The CMS has added new information about physicians and other healthcare providers to the agency’s physician directory tool. Called Physician Compare, the new site updates the agency’s healthcare provider directory that guides beneficiaries looking for Medicare-participating physicians online. According to the CMS, the new site was required by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and contains information about physicians enrolled in the Medicare program, including doctors of medicine, osteopathy, optometry, podiatric and chiropractic medicine.
