The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services launched the Quality Care Finder designed to help beneficiaries and their caregivers find better health care options. 
It is really an aggregation of tools they already had in place now put into one place for easy finding.
You can
  • Get contact information for hospitals, doctors, nursing homes, home health agencies, dialysis facilities, and drug and health plans.
  • Compare information about the quality of care and services these providers and plans offer.
  • Get helpful tips on what to look for when comparing and choosing a provider or plan.
You also can call 1-800-MEDICARE  (1-800-633-4227) or TTY call 1-877-486-2048 for information.

I usually recommend this as a first stop in accessing your health care provider but not the last one.
