Aon Hewitt - No SOP for Properly Activating Cobra Benefits
I am battled with Live Well Benefits, which is administrated by AON. I setup direct deposit and discovered AON would not active my United Health insurance until 01/01/16, which would go retro to 11/1/15. However, I need my insurance activated now (11/01) to cover expensive Rx drugs. I figured out by speaking with AON 2-3 times that mailing a check for Nov and Dec will active my insurance. My ins was activated after 1 week. However, in January AON deducted $4,144.92 from my checking account (direct debt) to pay premiums again for Nov and Dec, instead of just Jan. I demanded a refund for $2,615.32. I called back 3-4 time for status of my refund. Each time AON made a decision to apply over-payment to future premiums instead of fulfilling my request for refund. I told customer service I have no confidence in AON billing and was very concerned about overpaying again or I received new employer benefits.
Why can AON setup proper Cobra billing so that cobra insurance is reactivated in 7-10 days?
1) Can AON be fined for not properly reinstating insurance? I thought Cobra is federal law. To delay health reinstatement insurance should not be used as a loophole.
2) Why can't AON develop a proper Cobra insurance billing systems? I recall having similar expense with my wife's insurance in 2012. Again, cobra is a federal law and AON should fined by the government.
I am still waiting for my refund and had to compromise to apply pay to Feb premiums, which reduced my refund to $1085.72
