News and Information for the
Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Network

May 2014

Harvard Pilgrim Enters Connecticut

In April, Harvard Pilgrim received approval from the Connecticut Department of Insurance to begin offering health coverage in the state of Connecticut, and we have begun selling our products with a July 1, 2014 effective date.

Harvard Pilgrim will be offering PPO and Open Access HMO products (which do not require members to select a PCP or obtain referrals) in Connecticut. You can recognize our Connecticut members by their ID cards, which display the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care of Connecticut or the HPHC Insurance Company logos in the upper left corner and product names in the upper right corner (see the samples below).

By July 1, 2014, a description of the Connecticut products will be available in the “Products and Product Administration” section of the Provider Manual. Also, in the coming months, Harvard Pilgrim will be offering educational webinars to our new Connecticut providers. As these webinars become available, dates and information on how to enroll will be posted in the Connecticut section of our provider website.
