The following applies to all UMP plans.
ALERT! In most cases, HTA Program decisions are effective at the beginning of the calendar year. If the plan makes a rare exception to this policy and changes coverage during the calendar year based on an HTA Program decision, the plan will notify you in writing before the change is effective.
Under state law, UMP 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! Implementation of HTA Program decisions takes precedence over any other coverage policies.
