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.

If you transfer from a full-time to a part-time position, you will have to pay more out-of-pocket to continue your medical coverage. Medical, vision and dental coverage are not mandatory for part-time employees. You have the option to discontinue your coverage if you become a part-time employee. You will return to the Plan as soon as The Health and Welfare office is notified of your return to full-time status.
Part-time employees can choose to pay monthly for coverage through the Health & Welfare Plan. All part-time employees (except for New Service Agreement employees and re-hired retired employees) receive long-term disability and life insurance coverage. For more information, visit the Enrollment page.
