As of June 1, 2016, Johns Hopkins Community Physicians is contracted with the insurance plans listed below.

This list is not all-inclusive, updated periodically and subject to change. Please contact your health plan to verify participation and coverage prior to scheduling your appointment.

Important Points to Consider:

  1. Insurance contracts for Johns Hopkins Community Physicians may vary from insurance contracts for other Johns Hopkins entities.
  2. Johns Hopkins Community Physicians is contracted to participate with insurance plans and provider networks that offer both primary and specialty care benefits.
    • Primary Care: If your plan requires the selection of a primary care provider (PCP), you must select a Johns Hopkins Community Physicians PCP to be covered for primary care services.
    • Specialty Care: Your managed care plan may require you to obtain a referral from your PCP in order to receive coverage for services provided by a Johns Hopkins Community Physicians specialist.
  3. There may be certain medical services provided by our practitioners that are not covered by our contract with your health plan. Some contracts carve-out laboratory services, radiology and other ancillary services. Please check with your health plan before scheduling these services.
  4. Certain plans (including some plans offered through the Health Benefit Exchange markets) may limit the geographic area in which you are able to receive care; even for routine services. Your insurer may refer to this as a “LIMITED NETWORK” plan.
  5. Johns Hopkins Community Physicians is participating with Medicare A and B, but has limited participation with Medicare Advantage plans.  Currently, we are participating only with Johns Hopkins Advantage MD/Advantage MD Plus and Geisinger Gold Medicare Advantage plans.  (Note:  selected Johns Hopkins Community Physicians cardiologists have limited participation in Aetna Medicare Advantage plans).
  6. Johns Hopkins Community Physicians is participating with Maryland Medical Assistance but IS NOT participating with Out-of-State Medical Assistance plans. Priority Partners is the only Maryland Medicaid MCO that Johns Hopkins Community Physicians is participating with.
