UHC/Oxford Health uses the same online Online Payment system for all their policies holders throughout the country. It is likely that it is not integrated with their system. So whenever you log in to make a payment, it will always display that your outstanding balance is zero.
However, based on feedback from many of our existing client, their payment system always got consolidated correctly with the accurate payment being posted. As you can see from the screenshot of one of my client's account, he just goes online to pay whatever amount he felt like.
However, the easiest way may be just to set up the automatic online payment online with UHC online payment portal here.
The most important thing !!! Get the confirmation record
Oxford Health IT system may not have instant payment notification yet. Hence, after you have made the payment, you either do a screen capture and provide the payment confirmation page to us. We will pass that to our dedicated broker rep to complete your enrollment process.
Once it's completed, save the payment confirmation page & email it back to me. For whatever reason, Oxford has not integrated the payment system to the rest of their system yet. Hence, this manual process is needed
Once I received the Payment Confirmation, I will take care of the rest. (Below is a sample of how the payment confirmation looks like).
Please note, Oxford system took up to 24 hours for payment settlement, hence, if you can access the link that I set you with your group ID, please wait 24 hours, (business day) & try again, that way, it always works.
