Medicare Participating Physician Directory Information for 2024

The Medicare Participating Physician Directory (MEDPARD) is a list of physicians, suppliers, and practitioners (Medicare health care providers) who have signed an agreement to accept assignment on all claims. When a Medicare provider accepts assignment, they agree to accept the Medicare approved amount as payment in full for a covered service and can only bill the patient for deductible, coinsurance, and any non-covered services.

CMS has instructed carriers to no longer print paper copies of the MEDPARD. Noridian, however, does have the MEDPARD database available on our website with a search capability that will allow the requestor to search for a participating provider by specialty, state, and city.

Participating providers should visit the MEDPARD directory to check their practice information for accuracy. Your participation information should appear on the website defined above. Contact Provider Enrollment directly if specific information is incorrect, has changed or is not present. The information in the database is based upon information Noridian receives when initially enrolling providers in the Medicare program, or during annual open enrollment at the end of each year.

Online Assistance for Beneficiaries

As part of the ongoing effort to provide Medicare beneficiaries with information to help them make health care choices, CMS has a participating physician directory at, the CMS beneficiary website. The directory information can be found by selecting "Find care providers". The directory contains names, addresses, and specialties of Medicare participating physicians who have agreed to accept assignment for all covered services. You may search the directory by specialty, physician or non-physician practitioner, location, gender, or last name.
