Medicare suppliment Plan F
« on: February 13, 2018, 02:40:08 PM »
My husband has Medicare supplement Plan F thru United Health care. The payments are set up to come out automatically out of our checking account. I have a Costco Visa and like to charge everything I can on it to get the bonus bucks at the end of the year. I just called United Health Care and asked if we could set up monthly auto payments thru the Visa. The guy said no, that it has to come out of a checking account. GRRRR! Do any of you know of a work around on this? First the guy said I could pay with Visa then he said no. I am not sure if he meant I could call in each month to make the payment but could not set up an auto payment plan. I should call back to clarify but if I have to call in each month that would be a pain in the butt. Why wouldn't United Health Care take the Visa card??

Interesting question.  I'm following along here as we just signed up Monday for our Plan G & Plan D.  It never crossed my mind to have it paid by a credit card.  Our payments are set up to come out of a checking account automatically each month.

Maybe I will call our insurance guy to ask that question.

Because they would wind up paying a fee to Visa.
