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.

Yes, your newborn child will be covered by the Plan from the date of birth, as long as you enroll the child within 30 days from the date of birth. If you enroll the child between 31 and 90 days after the date of birth, coverage for the newborn child begins on the first of the following month. If you miss this 90-day period, you will not be able to enroll your newborn child until the next Open Enrollment Period. You will need to provide the Plan with the necessary documentation. For more information, visit the "If You Have a Baby" section on the Life Events page.
