As a reminder, to expedite claims processing and initiate care management services to members following an inpatient stay, Harvard Pilgrim requires all acute care facilities to submit a daily list of discharged members, including newborns and NICU cases; we will accept the current format of your discharge census.
To submit discharge data electronically, email Discharges@HarvardPilgrim.org with a password-protected file using your NPI or existing password for the discharge file (please inform Harvard Pilgrim of the password used for the protected file). Alternatively, you can FAX your discharge file to 617-509-1159, “Attn: Care Management Dept.”
For details on the information required in daily discharge reports, refer to the "Acute Care Facility Discharge Notification Requirements" section in the “Access to Care” section of our Medicare Advantage Provider Manual. The discharge notifications requirement applies to our Medicare Advantage products as well as our commercial products.
