Hundreds of thousands of excellent doctors serve Medicare patients nationally. But which doctor is the best choice for you?

Think about these 4 Cs when choosing a doctor for your unique health care needs.


1.

Care

Is your care coordinated? Meaning, do all the doctors speak to each other, or do you have to coordinated it yourself? How experienced is the doctor in managing the kinds of chronic conditions you have?

2.

Convenience

Do they have same day appointments? Is the doctor located nearby – within an easy drive or on a popular bus route? Are the office hours extensive enough to meet your schedule?


Image

3.

Cost

Do you have the right insurance to cover your care? How can you tell if you’re getting the best value for your dollar?

4.

Continuity

Can the doctor continue to provide the level of care you’ve been getting (or even better care) without any bumps in the road? Are there office staff who will help you transition from clinic to hospital to skilled nursing facility?
