GIC Product Updates Effective July 1

The 2022-2023 plan year for Harvard Pilgrim and the Group Insurance Commission’s (GIC’s) Primary Choice HMO and Independence Plan POS begins on July 1, 2022. Harvard Pilgrim issued no changes to the provider tier assignments for the 2022-2023 plan year.  Providers received their tier assignment notifications in February 2022. As always, changes initiated by physicians moving to a different provider organization may result in their tier changing to that of the new organization.

Because Primary Choice is a limited-network product, some of Harvard Pilgrim’s contracted providers do not participate in the Primary Choice network, so it is important to confirm network participation before a Primary Choice member receives treatment.

For additional product details, please refer to the Tiered Network Plans section of the Learn About Our Products page on our provider website.
