Updates to Medicare’s Online Compare Tool

Starting December 1, Medicare.gov will compile the eight online tools to compare providers, such as Hospital Compare, Nursing Home Compare, and Physician Compare, into one place called Care Compare.  It provides the same information but with a new, streamlined design.  The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services urges providers to update hyperlinks on public-facing websites to the eight original care tools, so patients are directed to the new Care Compare.
