The UMP website is moving. This website contains 2019 UMP information for PEBB members only (through the end of 2019). If you are a PEBB member and/or you will be a new School Employees Benefits Board (SEBB) member and you need 2020 UMP benefits information, visit our new UMP website.

Preauthorization

Preauthorization is approval by the plan for coverage of specific services, supplies, or drugs before they are provided to the member. Preauthorization is not a guarantee of coverage. If you or your provider do not receive preauthorization for certain medical services or drugs, the claim may be denied.

Read "Preauthorizing medical services" and "Preauthorizing drugs" in your certificate of coverage to learn how this works.

You can find a list of medical services that require preauthorization online  or by calling UMP Customer Service at 1-888-849-368 (TRS: 711).
