Information on Medicare-enrolled professional and institutional providers.
It provides data on characteristics of hospitals and other types of healthcare facilities, including the name and address of the facility and the type of Medicare services the facility provides, among other information. It does not provide any individually identifiable information about beneficiaries.
If you have Original Medicare (Medicare Part A and B), then you don’t need to choose a primary care physician. In general, you can see any health care provider, but your costs are lower if you get care from a Medicare-approved primary care physician who is accepting new patients. However, some types of Medicare Advantage plans require you to see a primary care doctor before you see a specialist.
Medicare Part B will cover medically necessary services or certain preventive tests from Medicare-approved providers in office, hospital, or other settings. In most cases, you won’t need to get a referral to see specialists.
However, keep in mind that even though you may use any provider that is enrolled in Medicare, your costs will be lowest if you go to a doctor who accepts Medicare assignment. Accepting assignment means the physician agrees to accept the Medicare-approved amount as full payment for covered services. The provider also agrees to charge you only the Medicare deductible, copayment and/or coinsurance, if applicable.
