Feasibility of Developing a Model Physician Directory for Medicare Beneficiaries


AARP, in collaboration with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), will test the feasibility of assembling a physician directory that meets the standards recommended by a Fund-supported, NCQA-convened panel of experts. The directory will include information about physicians within a single market who care for Medicare beneficiaries in that community, whether through a Medicare preferred provider organization, health maintenance organization, or other setting. NCQA will provide technical assistance for the development and maintenance of the directory and a user guide, as well as conduct consumer testing. The AARP team will promote and disseminate the model directory. To create a blueprint for others to follow, the costs and process of developing and maintaining the online directory will be documented. CMS and AARP will supply cofunding for the project.
