MEDICARE PROVIDERS: Often I receive phone calls asking for a referral to therapists who accept Medicare. Many times I make recommendations but the client finds that they are either not taking new patients or are no longer in practice. Are there any current Medicare providers on the APPT site that are currently taking clients?

Glen Fineman, me, Kate Rist. We are all busy, and a new caller will have to wait a few days or a few weeks to get in.
I was recently able to hand-off a referral to Pando Geriatrics with no delay. So, a good resource to know.
I’m not sure why this was done – but I notice now that the membership database appears to no longer include the Medicare or Medicaid search terms. Huh, maybe no one realized that some of us used that function in the past.
