Reminder: Use the Correct Form for Provider Changes for Quicker Service

As you know, it’s critical that members have accurate information about your practice, so they can make informed decisions about their health care options. Harvard Pilgrim is committed to working with you to ensure that the information we currently have for your practice is up to date. Our goal is to process any changes you may have to your practice information as quickly and efficiently as possible. To this end, it’s important to submit your changes on the appropriate form:

  • HCAS Provider Enrollment Form — If one of your providers will be newly participating with Harvard Pilgrim, please submit that change using the universal HCAS provider enrollment form. The information supplied through this form is necessary for credentialing any new providers.  
  • Harvard Pilgrim’s Provider Change Form — Please use this form to notify us of other changes to your practice, such as changes to practice address, phone number, LCU affiliation, panel status, etc.

Verifying that the correct form has been filled out completely and accurately before submission helps to avoid unnecessary delays and the need to re-submit your changes.
