Steward Provider Tiers

If you currently utilize a Steward physician, facility or service, we encourage you to change providers to avoid higher out-of-pocket costs for your health care services. 

We have a dedicated team prepared to assist health plan members every step of the way. You may call 508-973-2222 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, to select and establish a relationship with a new provider. Our specialists will also assist you with transferring your records and making your first appointment with your new physician.
