As a reminder, Harvard Pilgrim will be modifying the format of all newly assigned practitioner and provider identification numbers, which appear in HPHConnect, roster reports, welcome letters, and in our online Provider Directory, among other places.
The new identification numbers will contain numerals only; Harvard Pilgrim will no longer be issuing alphanumeric practitioner and provider ID numbers. However, while Harvard Pilgrim had originally announced that the new number sequences will contain 9 numerals, they will actually contain 8. The newly created practitioner IDs will begin with 12000000, and the newly created provider IDs will begin with 20000000.
Please note that this change will apply only to the assignment of new ID numbers. All existing practitioner and provider ID numbers will remain the same.
