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 means your provider must request that UMP cover a service on the UMP preauthorization list. To be covered, some services must be preauthorized before you receive services.

Because your provider has the clinical details and technical billing information needed for the preauthorization request, it is to your benefit that they submit a preauthorization request on your behalf.

Find out how preauthorization works or visit the Employee and Retiree Benefits forms and publications page to find a list of services requiring preauthorization.

To learn more about preauthorization for medical services, you can also read the "Limits on plan coverage" section in your plan's certificate of coverage.

To learn more about preauthorization for an exception to the Tier 3 drug cost-share, UMP Classic and UMP Plus members can read the "How much will I pay for prescription drugs?" section in their plan's certificate of coverage.
