If you are a subscriber who received a default plan enrollment letter AND you disagree with the changes to your account you may do the following:

The Everett Clinic and The Polyclinic network status with Regence BlueShield/Uniform Medical Plan
On December 22, 2022, Regence and The Everett Clinic and The Polyclinic reached a new multi-year network agreement. Regence mailed letters to notify the applicable Uniform Medical Plan members that they may continue to receive care from The Everett Clinic and The Polyclinic at the preferred provider network rate.
Per the WA HCA, the new agreement applies to all employees, non-Medicare retirees, and Medicare retirees enrolled in any UMP offering under both the PEBB and SEBB Programs.
