Find preferred providers for UMP Classic and UMP CDHP

Note: UMP does not cover dental services; search for dental providers through PEBB.

Why use preferred providers?

When you see a preferred provider...

  • You pay less: 15 percent of the allowed amount for most services after you pay your medical deductible - compared to 40 percent of the allowed amount with participating providers.
  • Preventive care services (including immunizations) are covered in full.
  • The provider submits claims and preauthorization requests to the plan on your behalf.
  • The provider won't bill you for more than the plan allowed amount.

What is a covered provider type?

The plan pays for covered services only when performed by a covered provider type. All network and non-network providers are covered provider types.

If you see an out-of-network provider that is not a covered provider type, the plan will not pay for any of the services received; you will be responsible for all charges. As with all noncovered services, any payments you make to a noncovered provider type will not apply toward your medical deductible or medical out-of-pocket limit.

What is a primary care provider, and why should I select one?

A primary care provider (PCP) is a doctor or other provider (such as a nurse practitioner) who specializes in one of the following:

  • Family or general practice
  • Obstetrics/gynecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Adult medicine
  • Pediatrics
  • Naturopathy

You are not required to select a PCP, but choosing one has benefits. A PCP can help identify which preventive care tests and screenings you need at each stage of life, diagnose and treat a variety of health care issues, and help coordinate your care with specialists.

Think of a PCP as the person who knows the most about your health history and can provide or recommend services based on your needs. To find a PCP in your area, use the provider search on the Regence website.

Do I need a referral to see specialists?

No, you don’t need a referral to see a specialist for most services. However, you will save money by seeing preferred providers, especially for preventive services. See "Why use preferred providers?" above for more information.
