Each year, Neighborhood Health Plan, with assistance from the independent market research firm Market Measurement, Inc., conducts a telephone survey to identify the ways in which we can better serve your needs. This year's survey will be conducted over the next several weeks. Your responses will remain completely confidential, as only summary data will be shared with Neighborhood Health Plan. The survey will take only about ten minutes.

Beginning December 1, 2014, all claims for NHP HMO and MassHealth members should be submitted electronically, or to a new mail address.
Starting on December 1, 2014, Neighborhood Health Plan (NHP) will be changing our address for original paper claims submissions. Starting with submissions on or after December 1, 2014, original paper claims for NHP HMO and MassHealth members should be sent to the following new address:
Neighborhood Health Plan
PO Box 853908
Richardson, TX 75085-3908
Please continue to use the current mailing address for paper claims until November 30. After December 1, the current mailbox will no longer be active. All claims mailed there will be returned. For PPO members, continue to use the claims address listed on the member ID card.
For appeals, adjustments, and other correspondence, continue to mail these to 253 Summer St, Boston, MA 02210.
Please be aware of the new paper claims processing changes:
NHP recommends electronic claims submission as the preferred method of claims submission. Over 90% of claims are submitted electronically today. There will be no changes to the electronic claims process.
For paper claims, NHP currently rejects claims when incomplete information is submitted such as member or provider information. Rejected claims are not processed and do not appear in NHP’s system. Starting December 1, certain claims with incomplete information will be processed. Once processed, the claim status will be viewable on NHPNet, the secure provider portal. These claims will also appear on your explanation of payments, which will be accessible on NHPNet within 30 days. To register for NHPNet, go to https://nhpnet.nhp.org and follow the registration instructions.
