New billing system launching for existing customers with 100+ employees

The implementation of UnitedHealthcare’s new billing system is now launching for existing employers with 100+ employees. These fully insured and self-funded customers will be moved to the new billing system starting as early as September 2019, completing all transitions by February 2020.

What is changing?

Invoices

  • Upon the billing transition, you will receive an improved, enhanced and user-friendly invoice, along with an invoice guide.
  • During the transition period, you may receive a separate invoice and statement for prior month adjustments, along with any billing-related transactions.
  • The new invoice will display system-generated IDs instead of Social Security numbers.

Payments

There is a new lockbox for the new billing system. If you pay via check, you will need to remit their payment to the following new lockbox:

  • Regular mail
    UHS Premium Billing
    P.O. Box 94017
    Palatine, IL 60094-4017
  • Overnight mail
    UHS Premium Billing
    Attn: Box 94017
    5505 N. Cumberland Ave., Suite 307
    Chicago, IL  60656-1471

If you have an ACH debit block or filter, you will need to contact your bank and inform them that company ID# 1411289245 is allowable. This will prevent erroneous returned payments and/or past due status.

What is not changing?

  • There will be no change to your online access to eServices and billing portal.
  • Any automatic payments that are already set up will remain in place.
  • The billing analyst assigned to you will remain the same.
