Thank you for your interest in being a Maryland Physicians Care network provider!
Maryland Physicians Care (MPC) is a local, provider-owned, leading Medicaid Managed Care Organization in the State of Maryland that administers high-quality health care services to 225,000 qualifying HealthChoice recipients.
We can only succeed by working collaboratively with our providers. Due to the number of requests received to become an MPC provider, we use criteria to help us make contracting decisions.
These factors are:
- Geographic needs based on federal and state requirements
- Existing provider coverage in the targeted area
- Membership requirements for a particular specialty
- Member accessibility
If you are interested in a contract with us, please submit a non-binding letter of intent to the MPC Contracting Department.

Once we receive your letter of intent, the next step is to compare our membership’s needs with current network availability. The following information is obtained:
- Board certification
- Languages spoken
- Office location
- Network assessments (only for providers not joining a contract group)
We will conduct a comprehensive site audit and medical chart review for Primary Care Physicians and Ob/Gyns. We will also discuss Maryland Physicians Care’s participation requirements, policies, and provider obligations with you.
After the site audit is completed, we begin the credentialing process. Maryland Physicians Care credentials providers according to nationally recognized standards.
