Contracting with us is easy

Thank you for your interest in being a Maryland Physicians Care network provider! Because of the number of requests we receive, we use a set of 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 Contracting Department via mail, e-mail or fax:

Mail:     Maryland Physicians Care
            Attn: Contracting Department
            1201 Winterson Road, 4th Floor

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. In addition, we will 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.
