Any payments made will be applied to your account balance within three business days.
The effective date of the withholding is determined by the SSA or RRB. The SSA or RRB will notify you when withholding begins. Please continue to make payments directly to Peoples Health until you receive the notice. If the SSA or RRB does not approve your request, we will notify you. You will then revert to direct bill status and start receiving a monthly invoice.
To pay through benefit check withholding, contact member services by phone or email: Phone: 504-849-4865, 225-346-5704, 1-800-222-8600 (Toll-free) 711 (TTY). Or email: email@example.com.
We are available Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. If you contact us on a weekend or holiday, you may need to leave a message, but we will return your call within one business day.
We will send you a monthly statement for your records.
Payment Selection Form PDF This is a downloadable form that lists all your payment options. Please note: You are only required to complete and return this form to Peoples Health if you would like to start paying through electronic funds transfer from your bank account. Member services can accept all other payment change requests over the phone; however, if you would like to send a change request to us in writing, you may also use this form.
