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.

UMP Plus–Puget Sound High Value Network

Alert: UMP Plus–Puget Sound High Value Network does not have primary care network providers for adults in Thurston County at this time due to limited access. Pediatric primary care, as well as adult and pediatric specialty care, remains available in the Olympia area. This means that you and any adult dependents may need to travel to another county served by UMP Plus–Puget Sound High Value Network for primary care services from a network provider. Telehealth services through UMP Plus–Puget Sound High Value Network may also be an appropriate option for some primary care needs.
