Premiums and billing

Invoice schedule and detail

Premium billing is processed the first week of the month prior to the coverage month, and is due and payable on the first day of the coverage month.

Format

Each month, you will receive a copy of the billing that includes:

  • A Summary of Activity page
  • Retroactive additions & terminations
  • Current monthly charges

Please submit the bottom portion of the first page along with your payment to ensure that payment is applied correctly. The perforated bottom portion of the first page should be torn off and flipped over with the Health Tradition return address displaying in the return envelope.

Your plan may have one or more accounts, so please pay the total amount billed for each account under your plan. Any adjustments received by Health Tradition before the 15th will be processed in the next month’s billing.

How to Read Your Invoice

Each month, you will receive a copy of the billing that consists of three parts:

  • The first page will list the Previous Balance, Payment made since prior bill, Balance Forward, Current Month bill amount, any Adjustments, and the Total Due.

 

  • The next section will list each employee, bill month, and bill amount. These are broken down in sections by the sub-account name/benefit plan & coverage tier. Please note, retro adjustments will appear first in each section.

 

  • The final section will include a summary of the invoice including, coverage tier, coverage month, subscriber count, and the sub-account names.

 

 

Please submit the top section of your bill with your payment for the total amount billed to:

Health Tradition Health Plan
NW 7349
PO Box 1450
Minneapolis, MN 55485-7349

Any mid-month adjustments received by Health Tradition before the 15th will be processed in the next month’s billing.

  • If the effective date is between the 1st and 15th of the month, the entire month will be billed.
  • If the termination date is between the 1st and 15th of the month, there will be no bill for that month.
  • If the effective date is between the 16th and end of the month, there will be no bill for that month.
  • If the termination date is between the 16th and end of the month, the entire month will be billed.
