September 04, 2019 / Managed Healthcare Executive

Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Tufts Health Plan, both based in Massachusetts, intend to combine their nonprofit organizations into a new entity, which will become one of New England’s largest nonprofit health services organizations. The yet unnamed organization will provide health coverage in all segments of the market regardless of a person’s age, income, life circumstance or health status, according to a press release from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. The new organization will serve close to 2.4 million members in Massachusetts, Maine, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Rhode Island, offering employer-sponsored plans; Medicare and Medicaid plans; Qualified Health Plans; and plans for those who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. Through the combination of two strong organizations with a commitment to nonprofit health care in New England, we will be able to provide even greater value to consumers, as well as improve access to care throughout the region,” said Joyce Murphy, chair of the board for Harvard Pilgrim Health Care.
