Regence (UMP [SEBB] plans) preauthorization requirements (Document 1)
Preauthorization requirements for UMP plans (administered by Regence). This document includes: Guidelines, inpatient admissions, radiology, sleep, physical medicine, lab, maternity medicine, and genetic testing. Preauthorization is when you seek approval from your health plan for coverage of specific services, supplies, or drugs before receiving them. Some services or treatments (except emergencies) may require preauthorization before the plan pays for them. These criteria do not imply or guarantee approval. Please check with your plan to ensure coverage. Preauthorization requirements are only valid for the month published. They may have changed from previous months and may change in future months.
