Combination between Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Tufts Health Plan is complete
Yesterday marked a milestone. Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Tufts Health Plan completed our combination, forming one organization--a mission-driven non-profit, unequivocally committed to all people throughout our region. Our dedication to corporate citizenship through our combined Foundations will continue to support the health and wellness of the diverse communities we have the privilege to serve.
Our Foundation team is excited to collaborate with our colleagues at Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation to plan for a new unified Foundation that will support communities in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. This process will happen over the coming months. The combined Foundation will be led by Nora Moreno Cargie, who currently serves as president of the Tufts Health Plan Foundation and vice president of Corporate Citizenship at Tufts Health Plan.
While officially one organization, both the Harvard Pilgrim and Tufts Health Plan legacy brands and products will remain in the market for a period of time. The benefits, programs and services members currently rely on do not change. The same holds true for grants from Tufts Health Plan Foundation. Current grantees will not be affected by this change.
We will honor active grant commitments made by the Foundation, whether single year or multi-year, and will continue our regular grantmaking in 2021. Grant deadlines for 2021 have been posted on the Tufts Health Plan Foundation website.
Our volunteer service and giving programs are growing as a result of this news. Nora leads this work for our new company. Employees from both companies will have the opportunity to serve together in community throughout the year and into the future.
We will be in touch periodically in the coming months to share updates and news.
In the meantime, we are available to answer any questions you may have.
We are grateful for your extraordinary work in community—especially as we reflect on this past year—and look forward to continued collaboration and engagement.
