Earlier this fall, Health Plans, Inc., Harvard Pilgrim’s wholly owned subsidiary, began partnering with UnitedHealthcare to enhance its existing product offerings for multi-state employers based in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine. This alliance allows members to seamlessly access the extensive UnitedHealthcare Options PPO Network in addition to the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care provider network.
As a result of this new partnership, member ID cards for Health Plans members are changing. ID cards for members of the plans offered jointly by Health Plans and UnitedHealthcare will include logos for Harvard Pilgrim, UnitedHealthcare, and Health Plans. In addition, any new cards produced for new or existing Health Plans members, regardless of their plan, will no longer include the 3-digit code that precedes current group numbers (001), as shown in the updated sample ID cards below.
