United Healthcare mistakenly mailed out invoices for an administrative fee of $9.43 to the Transit Employee Health and Welfare retiree members.
These letters were mailed between 12/4 – 12/8.
United Healthcare is currently drafting and will mail an apology letter to the impacted individuals letting them know that the letter was sent in error and they do not owe that amount.
If anyone has mailed in payment, they will be issued a refund.
United Healthcare greatly apologizes for this error.
