2017 PEBB Plan Comparison Chart

 

Uniform Medical Plan (UMP)

These plans are administered by Regence BlueShield.  They allow you the freedom to choose any provider, but provide a higher reimbursement if your provider contracts as a preferred provider with Uniform Medical.  These plans offer coverage worldwide.

For additional information, or to find a provider, contact Uniform Medical at (888) 849-3681 or visit www.hca.wa.gov/ump.

Group Health Classic/Value & Sound Choice

These plans require you to seek services by a Group Health provider.  If you happen to go to a non-Group Health provider, you will not receive coverage.

You must verify your provider contracts with Group Health to receive maximum coverage.  This is important, as you could be responsible for costs if you receive care from a provider who is not in the Group Health network.
