United Medical Resources (UMR) is a third party administrator of dental benefits who utilizes multiple dental networks to provide discounted pricing to plan members. Participation with UMR can be vary between patients, a provider can be in-network for one patient and out of network for another. This makes it very important to verify which network each patient’s plan falls under in order to determine if a provider is actually in-network. This can be verified by either checking the back of the patient's UMR ID card or calling and verifying benefits through the automated system. Below is a list of the PPO networks that a provider could be participating with.
