Search tips

Be specific. "Medicare reform" is more precise than just Medicare.

Use phrases, with quote marks. Words alone make a weak search.
   "Medicare pay cut"   "licensing fees"   "disciplinary actions"

Combine terms. Zero in on what you want with multiple terms:
   +"online consultation" +reimbursement

Use the plus (+) sign to require. Put it right in front of the term, with no space in between. (Do not use + or "and" to connect terms.)
   RIGHT:   +upcoding +"CPT coding"
   RIGHT:   +"online consultation" +reimbursement
   WRONG:   online + consultation
   WRONG:   online and consultation

Use the minus (-) sign to exclude. For patient safety programs but not bills:
   "patient safety" -legislation

Use "or" if you want either term. For either Medicare or Medicaid:
   Medicare or Medicaid

Use "( )" to group searches . For pay cuts in either Medicare or Medicaid:
   "pay cuts" (Medicare or Medicaid)

Use the asterisk/star (*) as wildcard. For regulation, regulations (plural), regulate and regulatory:

Tweak your search. Try a few variations to see what works best.
