Why Harvard Pilgrim

We’re delivering on our promise to make quality, affordable care available to all. We know the ins and outs of health care in New England, but our coverage extends far beyond this corner of the country.

We have a full range of insurance solutions offering outstanding coverage, choice and value. We have plans for everyone, from small businesses to large employers.

And so much more

We deliver value

Sustainable premiums, cost savings and an excellent experience our commitment to keeping costs down is unwavering.

Strong provider network choice

More than 80,000 doctors and other clinicians in the region and 183 hospitals participate in the Harvard Pilgrim network. If you have employees outside New England, our national network offered through UnitedHealthCare gives access to 1.2 million providers and more than 5,500 hospitals.

Members also have access to a network of more than 18,000 behavioral health providers – plus confidential, accessible and convenient support and treatment options.

So Many Ways to Save

Harvard Pilgrim members can save on a wide range of products and services* to help them live a healthy life.

Lots of options for care

We want members to have more options when it comes to their care. Here are just a few examples:

  • Most Harvard Pilgrim plans include coverage for acupuncture and chiropractic care, which many other insurance carriers don’t offer.
  • Members are covered to receive virtual visits or telemedicine/telemental health—urgent medical care and routine behavioral health care using live video on a smartphone, tablet or computer.
  • Members can receive discounts on alternative medicine services including yoga practitioners, tai chi, and our Mind the Moment program.*

*These savings programs are not insurance products. Rather, they are discounts for programs and services designed to help keep members healthy and active. Restrictions may apply. All programs subject to change without advance notice.

We Invest in our community

We’re invested in the communities we serve through the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation’s Healthy Food Fund and giving and service programs, as well as a broad range of local sponsorships. In 2019, the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation awarded more than $2.4 million in grants to more than 990 nonprofit organizations in over 450 communities in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire.

We listen to — and learn from — our members

Your employees will appreciate the value we place on the opinions of our members. Through our online community, we regularly engage with members to gather their opinions and ideas about our products and services, which helps us ensure we stay member-focused.
