Participating Managed Care Health Plans for Select Locations

Companies with Contracts with Johns Hopkins University, The Johns Hopkins Hospital, and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center

As of October 2, 2017, the Johns Hopkins University (faculty physicians), Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, and The Johns Hopkins Hospital have contracts with the following managed care health plans.

This list is updated periodically and subject to change. It may not be comprehensive. Before scheduling an appointment or seeking treatment, please check with your health insurance plan to verify full coverage. 

Please be advised that there may be certain services provided in our facility which are not covered by our contract with your plan. Please inquire with your health insurance plan before calling to schedule an appointment.

Please note that your health insurance plan may require you to obtain a referral from your primary care provider before being seen by our specialists.

Please be advised we are participating for Medicare but we are not contracted for most Medicare Advantage Plans, we are only contracted for the JHHC Advantage MD/MD Plus and the Geisinger Gold Advantage plans.  Medicare Advantage PPO and PFFS plans may be accepted if the patient is willing to use their out of network benefit.

We are participating for Maryland Medical Assistance but not for Out of State Medical Assistance Plans.  If you are an out of state medical assistance plan member, you must obtain an authorization from your plan to potentially be seen at Johns Hopkins; the Department will contract the Office of Managed Care to determine if a Single Case Agreement can be initiated.

Certain plans may limit the geographic area in which you are able to receive care, even for routine services.  Your plan may refer to this as a "LIMITED NETWORK".  Johns Hopkins may not be part of the Limited Network with your plan.
