64. It all depends on the area. In metro areas, where there are plenty of

multi-specialty clinics, you'll find that they all accept Medicare. In places where most primary care is done by physicians in individual private practices, that may not be the case. I haven't been a doctor in an individual private practice for years, now. Most also were not in-system for my Blue Cross insurance, either. However, there are multiple large clinical practices within a 15 minute drive of me here in the Twin Cities. Same-day appointments and Medicare acceptance is standard in those. I have an individual internal medicine doctor as my primary physician, and I chose him myself. He is in a group practice at a very good multi-specialty clinic. If I need to see a neurologist, for example, there's one in the same building and the same practice.

Medicaid is something altogether different. Fewer clinics accept medicaid here.
