I need a source for doctors, their specialties and what insurances they accept. I just don't know where to start. We'll be full time next year near Southport and will have to to transfer from all of our CT providors----my understanding is that insurance has to be carried where your primary residence is. Is there a website that rates doctors, or lists specialists? Thanks for any help. Also, for long-time transplants, is it possible to have elective surgery out-of-state and have it covered?

I have used Doctor Reviews and Doctor Ratings | Compare & Find Doctors | Vitals to suggest people. I would check names against the NC Licensing Board for possible malpractice: NCMB Licensee Search

As far as elective surgery goes, it totally depends on the plan, and if they cover it at all. Are you on Medicare or a private plan?
