Please see below for a description of the Medical plans offered by Walla Walla Community College and the areas they serve:
Uniform Medical Plan Classic
Uniform Medical Plan is a preferred provider network. That means that you can choose your own provider and you don’t need to get a referral from UMP to see a specialist. You will receive the highest level of benefit and pay the lowest amount out of your pocket if you see network providers.
Uniform Medical Plan Select
Uniform Medical Plan Select (UMP Select) is a self-insured Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) health plan. UMP is offered through the Washington State Health Care Authority’s Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) Program. UMP is administered by Regence BlueShield and Washington State Rx Services (WSRxS). All prescription drugs, services, or other benefit changes may require approval by the PEB Board. Approval takes place when benefits are procured for the next calendar year.
This Uniform high deductible plan has a low monthly premium and a high deductible. You are not allowed to have a Flexible Spending Account if you are enrolled in this plan. Please note that you need to submit a Limited Use VEBA if you are an exempt employee and enrolled in this plan.
