Retiree Healthcare Billing Process

UVM bills retiree healthcare on a monthly basis. If you have questions about the process, you may find the answer you need below:

Can I pay more than one month at a time?

Yes, most certainly. If you are able, we would strongly encourage you to pay six or even as many as 12 months in advance. If you do, you will not receive a monthly invoice until your credit balance is used up.

What forms of payment can I use to pay my healthcare premiums?

If your bank has an electronic bill paying service, you may wish to set up your bank account to make automatic payments to UVM for your healthcare premium. This is typically the easiest and safest way to ensure that your bill gets paid. Many banks offer this service for free. If yours does not or if you choose not to use it, you can continue to pay as you always have.

Can UVM debit my checking or savings account to automatically withdraw the funds to pay my healthcare premiums?

No, UVM has no way to set up a monthly debit to withdraw funds from your account.

Who is the vendor who handles retiree healthcare billing?

The University handles the billing and accounting of all invoices for retiree healthcare premiums. The company that will work with retirees who fail to pay their accounts on time is Education Computer Systems, Inc. (ESCI).
