Search for Medicare physicians on Medicare.gov by ZIP code, city or state. Enter the physician’s last name, specialty or medical condition on the site to define the service provider you need. Filter search results by indicating the Medicare assignment you prefer, which involves either showing all Medicare physicians or providers who accept the Medicare approved amount.

If you have a gender preference, sort results by this criterion, or indicate hospital affiliation to refine your search on Medicare.gov. Alternatively, search by indicating a group practice name or an affected body part. The search results show the profiles of listed physicians and provide maps and driving directions.

Get a representative to help you search for physicians who accept Medicare by contacting the Medicare helpline if you have difficulty accessing or navigating the Medicare site. The representative can conduct the search on your behalf and send you a printout of the search results, suggests the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
