Change in Format of Newly Assigned Practitioner and Provider ID Numbers


Beginning in late July, Harvard Pilgrim will be modifying the format of all newly assigned practitioner and provider identification numbers. These identification numbers — which appear in HPHConnect, roster reports, welcome letters, and in our online Provider Directory, among other places — will contain numerals only; Harvard Pilgrim will no longer be issuing alphanumeric practitioner and provider ID numbers.

The newly created practitioner IDs will begin with 300000000, and the newly created provider IDs will begin with 200000000. Please note that this change will apply only to the assignment of new identification numbers. All existing practitioner and provider ID numbers will remain the same.
