Discovery Benefits

The University of Chicago will be transitioning Bill Pay and COBRA Administrative Services from HealthEquity (WageWorks) to Discovery Benefits, Inc. (DBI) effective July 1, 2020.

Welcome Notice from Discovery Benefits

In the next few weeks, you will receive a welcome notice from DBI. The notice will include specific contact information and the July premium invoice. 

Bill Pay 

To ensure a proper transition, we recommend that you make your June payment as early as possible to HealthEquity (WageWorks). Bill Pay payments for the month of July should be sent to DBI instead of HealthEquity (WageWorks). Going forward each month, you will receive a premium invoice from DBI. Your welcome notice will include website access information in order to set up your online account. Once you have accessed your online account, you may sign up for automatic payments through the recurring payments page or by completing an ACH form and sending it to DBI for processing. You may also pay by check using the instructions on the invoice.

COBRA

Once you have submitted payment for the month of June to HealthEquity (WageWorks), you will receive a COBRA Takeover Notice from Discovery Benefits. This notice will include specific contact information and your July premium invoice. Your current COBRA information will not be transitioned to DBI until your final payment for the month of June is received and processed by HealthEquity (WageWorks).  We recommend that you make this last payment as early as possible to ensure timely delivery of your new COBRA paperwork.  

COBRA payments for the month of July should be sent to DBI instead of HealthEquity (WageWorks). Going forward each month, you will receive a premium invoice from DBI.  Your COBRA Takeover Notice will include the needed website access information in order to set up your online account. Once you have accessed your online account, you can sign up for automatic payments through the recurring payments page or by completing the ACH form and sending to DBI for processing. You can also pay by check using the instructions on the invoice.
