Electronic Payments-COBRA & Low Cost- This site enables you to make electronic premium payments for continuation of coverage under COBRA or Low Cost. Before you can use the on-line electronic payment  system, the Fund Office must establish an account for you on the electronic payment website.  To establish an electronic payment account, you will be required to return your continuation of coverage application with the first months premium payment in the form of a check or money order. Separate payments must be made for each UID account.  Payments for multiple UID accounts cannot be combined. Once your account has been established, you may click here and enter your COBRA/Low Cost UID# (without the dashes) to access the electronic payment system.   Follow and complete each step with the requested information.  To assist the Fund Office in processing your electronic payment, you must specify the month(s) you are paying for in the applicable section on the electronic website.  Once you have made your payment, you will receive a confirmation number and a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address that you provide on the electronic payment website. It is recommended that you save the confirmation for your records. Regardless of the method of payment you select, failure to submit timely payment for the premium amount due will result in cancellation of coverage.
