Our providers are our partners

At Maryland Physicians Care, our network providers and other health care providers are our partners in the delivery of high-quality health care services to our members. Good communication is the key to this successful partnership. Our Provider Relations Department is available to physicians, dentists and other health care professionals to assist you, answer your questions and resolve any issues.

Once contracted with Maryland Physicians Care, a Provider Relations representative will be assigned to your practice. Your representative serves as your primary point of contact with our system. If you are a primary care provider, your representative will visit you and your office staff on a regular basis to share important information and assist you with any administrative or operational concerns.

If you are interested in becoming a Maryland Physicians Care provider, please call us at 1-800-953-8854.
