Effective Dec. 1, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will retire eight original health care compare tools, completing the transition to the streamlined Care Compare website.  

The new website serves as a single point of entry for information about multiple levels of care, including doctors, hospitals, skilled-nursing facilities, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, long-term care hospitals, home health agencies, hospices, and dialysis providers. It also includes links to additional information and consumer resources, and is designed to provide one user-friendly place to find cost, quality of care, service volume, and other CMS quality data to help make informed health care decisions.
