Direct Bill (Optum Financial)
Direct Bill is a service, administered by Optum Financial, which allows Crewmembers to easily pay premiums when on a Leave of Absence or an applicable time-off program. If a Crewmember is going on a leave that lasts longer than one pay period, they will need to pay their required benefit contributions directly Optum Financial through Direct Bill. If contributions are not paid, benefits will be terminated during the leave or time-off and reinstate after returning to work.
