ALERT! HTA Program decisions are usually implemented by UMP at the beginning of the next calendar year after the HTA decision is issued. If UMP implements an HTA Program decision mid-year, the plan will notify you in writing before the change in coverage becomes effective.
Under state law, Uniform Medical Plan follows decisions by the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Program, which includes the work of the Washington State Health Technology Clinical Committee (HTCC). You may view the list of services that have been reviewed or are currently under review on the HTA Program website.
If you have questions about services affected by HTA Program decisions, call UMP Customer Service at 1-888-849-3681.
ALERT! HTA Program decisions implemented by the plan take precedence over any other coverage policies.
