Merger Between Tufts Health Plan and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care

In August 2019, Tufts Health Plan and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care announced their intent to combine their nonprofit organizations.

We have been assured that at this time there will be no impact on existing relationships, contracts, networks, pricing, etc. There will be no disruption to you or your dependents; you will continue to have the same coverage and excellent service you have become accustomed to. 

Plan officials have said it will be “business as usual” until at least sometime between the second and third quarter of 2020 as a review process takes place. This merger still needs state and regulatory approval, which can take up to one year or more. During this period, the two organizations remain separate and distinct — and competitors.
