 Not a member yet, but thinking about enrolling?

Note: The Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) annual open enrollment ended November 30, 2022. 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 videos 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: Navitus
    BIN: 610602
    Rx group #: 10008217

 Learn more about Centers of Excellence

If you qualify for services, the UMP Centers of Excellence (COE) Program covers single knee and single hip replacement surgery, and spine care evaluation and/or surgery for low to no cost. This program is available for all UMP members except those enrolled in UMP Plus and UMP members enrolled in Medicare as their primary coverage. Medicare and UMP Plus members have access to covered services related to joint replacement and spine care outside of this program. To learn more, visit Premera’s COE program website.

 Prescription Drug Price Check Tool

Use the Prescription Drug Price Check tool for UMP Classic , UMP Select, UMP CDHP, and UMP Plus to estimate the cost of your drug. For more information, refer to your certificate of coverage under the section “What you pay for prescription drugs”.

  • If you have UMP Classic or UMP Select, the prices for the Tier 2 drugs listed assume you’ve met your prescription drug deductible (some exceptions apply, see the UMP Preferred Drug List for more information). For these Tier 2 drugs, you will pay the entire cost of prescription drugs until you meet your prescription drug deductible. Once you have met this deductible for the year, you only pay your coinsurance.

  • If you have UMP CDHP, the prices listed assume you have met your combined (medical and prescription drug) deductible. You will pay the entire cost of prescription drugs until you meet your combined deductible (some exceptions apply, see the UMP Preferred Drug List for more information). Once you have met your deductible for the year, you only pay your coinsurance.

  • UMP Plus does not have a prescription drug deductible so the prices shown are an estimate of what you will pay.
