November 09, 2017
Maxillofacial and oral surgeons enrolled in Medicare are able to preview their 2016 performance data as it will appear on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Physician Compare on profile pages in December.
Due to a technical error, the preview period has been extended from Nov. 17 to Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. EST.
Physician Compare is intended to help patients find and compare physicians and other clinicians enrolled in Medicare. CMS, part of the Department of Health and Human Services, created Physician Compare in December 2010 as required by the Affordable Care Act.
