UMP Plus—Puget Sound High Value Network

Note: In 2017, UMP Plus–Puget Sound High Value Network (UMP Plus–PSHVN) does not have a clinic that provides network primary care services to adults in Thurston County. PSHVN is working to add more providers, but for now, members in this area may travel to Pierce County to receive adult primary care services. PSHVN does have pediatric primary care providers available in Thurston County. For more information, read the announcement about the change.
