As a reminder, Harvard Pilgrim requires that every individual urgent care location go through our facility credentialing process prior to providing care to our members. For a new urgent care location to be added to an existing contract, it must be credentialed according to Harvard Pilgrim standards, and the contract must be amended to include all locations associated with that urgent care tax identification number and National Provider Identifier (NPI).
