Google Healthcare Insurances

Listings

Manage healthcare insurances listed on Google at scale.

Insurance is the number one factor considered by consumers looking for a healthcare provider. Google populates insurance data in Google My Business panels by using data received from insurance networks.

Healthcare systems can now manage insurance data on Google in bulk through the platform to ensure accurate information for patients.

Insurance network information on Google listings has no impact on search rankings today, but affects consumers choice of health providers.

Getting Started

To begin managing healthcare insurances listed on Google, you can either:

  • Review the insurance networks Google lists and make changes as needed.
  • Update using your full list of accepted insurances.

To review insurances listed on Google:

  1. From the Listings tab, click Publisher Suggestions.
  2. Select Field: Insurance from the dropdown to filter results. This makes it easier to accept or reject suggestions in bulk.
  3. Accept publisher suggestions to push the data into your source of truth.

    As this insurance information is already listed live on Google, there is no risk in accepting all suggestions.
