Harvard Pilgrim cancels Medicare Advantage plan

By Robert Weisman

Harvard Pilgrim Health Care has notified customers that it will drop its Medicare Advantage health insurance program at the end of the year, forcing 22,000 senior citizens in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Maine to seek alternative supplemental coverage.

“We became concerned by the long-term viability of Medicare Advantage programs in general,’’ said Lynn Bowman, vice president of customer service at Harvard Pilgrim’s office in Quincy. “We know that cuts in Medicare are being used to fund national health care reform. And we also had concerns about our ability to build a network of health care providers that would meet the needs of our seniors.’’

Every person over age 65 should consult with an independent Medicare Advantage and Supplement consultant as soon as possible. All changes in current Advantage plans MUST be completed between November 15 and December 31.
