Note: The Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) annual open enrollment is over. It ended November 30, 2020. This information is for newly eligible subscribers or employees regaining eligibility who are choosing a health plan or for a subscriber who experiences a qualifying event during the year that creates a special open enrollment that allows a health plan change.

Find out more about all of UMP’s plans online with PEBB’s virtual benefits fair. The virtual benefits fair allows you to learn about your benefit options through an online, interactive, and personalized experience. It is available anytime, day or night.

Use your computer, tablet, or smartphone to visit UMP’s virtual benefits booth. Once there, you can view UMP’s short video to get an overview of all UMP plans or select a specific plan to see more detailed information. You can also access recorded webinars that discuss all of UMP’s plans.

 Using your UMP ID card

You use the same ID card for both medical services and prescription drugs. You should show your ID card to all providers you see, including pharmacies, to make sure they have up-to-date billing information for you. You do not use your UMP ID card for dental services.

If you haven't gotten your card yet, need a replacement, or need an extra card:

  • Print your own card by logging in to your Regence account. If you don’t already have an account, you will need your member ID number to create one. If you recently enrolled, your member information may not yet be available in your Regence account.
  • View your ID card by using the Regence mobile app. Find the Regence app in Apple's App Store or Google Play.
  • For medical services, call UMP Customer Service to get your ID number or order a card.
  • For prescription drugs, use the following prescription drug identification information (applies to all UMP PEBB plans):
    State of Washington: MedImpact
    RxBin#: 003585
    RxPCN: 38600
    RxGroup: 10008217
