Massachusetts-based Harvard Pilgrim Health Care said today that it has been granted a license to offer health coverage to Connecticut residents.
The company, which currently operates in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts, plans to begin selling policies in the second quarter of this year, starting coverage July 1. Harvard Pilgrim already has an office in Hartford.
Eric H. Schultz, the company’s president and CEO, was raised in Connecticut and said he looks forward to “coming home” by offering not-for-profit health plans to residents of the Nutmeg State.
“This is an important step in our vision to be New England’s top regional health services organization,” Schultz said in a statement.
