We’re pleased to share with you that the combination of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Tufts Health Plan received all the necessary regulatory approvals and officially closed on Jan. 1, 2021.
While Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Tufts Health Plan are officially one organization, our heritage brands and products will remain in the market for a period of time as we transition technologies and processes. There are no immediate changes for our network providers — claims and reimbursement processes, policies, public websites and secure portals, vendors, and resources remain the same. The one exception is for Tufts Health Freedom Plan, which was sold to UnitedHealthcare in connection with this transaction.
As transitions are planned and poised to occur, we are committed to sharing clear, timely updates with providers to keep you well informed.
For more information about the combination, please refer to our online Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page and visit here. We’ll be updating the FAQ as new information is available, so be sure to check back regularly.
Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Tufts Health Plan are known for working collaboratively with providers, and that will continue in this new organization. We’re excited for the future and look forward to working with you.
