You can now find a doctor who accepts Medicaid and Medicare through Google: how it works
When looking for health care options in the US, it is important that you find help from a doctor in your network if you have insurance. Whether you need help enrolling in Medicare or Medicaid, want to learn more about plans, or find health care providers who accept them, Google now makes it easy to find what you need. Writes about it Android Police.
As part of the Google Health Equity Summit, the company announced several search changes that will make it easier for people enrolled in Medicare or Medicaid to find the care they need, as well as those who want to enroll.
When looking for Medicare/Medicaid options, Google will give you easy access to requirements and steps to enroll, as well as other helpful resources, whether you're enrolled or not.
This will help people navigate and get the information they need. In the case of Medicare, members are over the age of 65 and many of them are probably not very tech-savvy, so it can be difficult for them to search for information on various resources.
And for heads of low-income households living paycheck to paycheck, wasting time looking for information about Medicaid is a waste of precious time.
You can enroll in both programs if you qualify.
“People all over the world use Google products and services to find information about their medical needs and questions. We are working to ensure that everyone can access reliable information that is relevant and applicable in accordance with their needs, ”Google said.
If you need to find a provider that accepts Medicare or Medicaid, Google can help you too.
