Via Benefits Reviews (139)
Jun 15, 2020
Told to call back - againI submitted all the documents and information requested and then called Via Benefits as directed 4 times. Now after 5 weeks the review has yet to be accomplished. Today I am told that it probably will take an additional 5-6 weeks before there is an answer. They do not call me - I have to continually call them to check on the status of the review..
The worse company to deal with. They put you off thinking you will give up and stop bothering them.

Changing insurance companiesChanged from BlueCross/BlueShield to United HealthCare for 2020 but didn't know that I needed to go through VIA. VIA stopped my retirement payments stating I wasn't insured.
Called VIA and explained, but they wouldn't just transfer me from BC/BS but insisted I purchased new insurance through them. Ended up with Aetna! However apparently lost 3 months IBM entitlements - absolutely disgusting service!

Called VIA for the third time today and finally got ahold of someone that actually new what I needed. Starr Byrd knew what I needed, and told me how to get it. The woman was extremely knowledgeable, wish I could get her every time I called VIa benefits.

I signup for new insurance coverage on Oct 20, 2019. On Dec 31, 2019 I get a call that my original sign up for my RX plan was not complete. Was this my fault? No, but I refiled again and had it go through ten days later. But on Jan 20, 2020 I get another call saying that my original filing on Oct 20 was not complete for my medical coverage. Was this my fault? NO, but I again filed another request for coverage for my medical providing insurance. But now the premium has gone up and I have no coverage until Feb 1, 2020. I only have coverage for this month under Medicare, and I am unsure about my RX plan now.

This agency is the worst I have ever delt with. I have called them 3 times for my money. I have a letter from Via Benefits that says: YOUR RECURRING PREMIUM REIMBURSEMENTS ARE SENT AFTER THE FIRST BUSINESS DAY O F EACH MONTH'. THAT IS AN OUT AND OUT LIE. Today is the 19th of January, I have called three times asking for my reimbursement, only to receive excuses. On1-16-20 I asked Steven S. to speak with a Manager and he refused, stating they had 8 days in which to "process"my money, telling me there is a difference between "processing" and "paid"., like I didn't know. I'm not interested in their WORDS or excuses. I want my money. STILL NO REIMBURSEMENT OF MY MONEY as of 1-17-2020. VERY DISGUSTING TO SAY THE LEAST. When I do receive my money it is NEVER ON THE FIRST OF THE MONTH, they post in "PROCESS" on the FIRST MONDAY OF EVERY MONTH, MAYBE could be the second Monday. Then I have to wait until the the following TUESDAY, of the next week, FOR THE REIMBURSEMENT to be posted in my account. MY credit union told me they post it as soon as they receive it, they do NOT HOLD ON TO IT. I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone. WHERE ARE THE CEO's, VP's, I'll bet they know NOTHING OF THIS LOUSY SYSTEM.

Worst agency ever. Different answer every time you call. On phone literally for hours. Was supposed to be contacted by underwriter to review new plan.. Set up time an date, no call. I followed up, was told I'd receive call within 48 hours, still no call. No corporate office phone no. to file complaint. Not sure who at State level (Ohio) thought these people were a good idea to contract with. Hope they have to use them some day.

OneExchange is a private Medicare exchange that is contracted by a number of employers, including Motorola Solutions, to work with its retirees and their spouses and dependents in transitioning from group health care coverage to individual Medicare health plansMany of these employers have also set up a Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) for their retirees who are losing group coverage to help offset the cost of the individual Medicare plan The HRA funding issue was corrected on May 28, and we informed MrsD [redacted] of this on May 29, It also appears as though all documents have been mailed to her and she has received them We are sorry to hear of the many difficulties she has had and that we have not met her expectations We appreciate the feedback, as we are continually working on ways to improve our service

I have been dealing with ViaBenefits for 3 years on behalf of my mother. They have always been very helpful with explaining her benefits. Today on Jan 2 2020, I spoke to a customer service rep, Mary Garcia. She was the rudest person I have ever experienced in all my years of calling on a company. She actually hung up on me as I asked a question. She should be fired

Most of time people are somewhat polite, but totally do NOT know what they are doing. Polite doesn't cut it. Trained staff would be helpful.

Case #: [redacted] Per our records, before this complaint was filed on 6/10, the participants were mailed a check for May’s reimbursement on 6/3/and they mailed a check June’s reimbursement on 6/20/ We allow carriers 4-weeks from the time the premium is paid to send payment files for reimbursement Once these files are received it takes 11-business days to process a reimbursementBecause the participants receive reimbursements via a paper check, there is an additional timeframe for mail to be received

I have a letter from Via Benefits, it states: YOUR RECURRING PREMIUM REIMBURSEMENTS ARE SENT AFTER THE FIRST BUSINESS DAY OF EACH MONTH. So someone isn't telling the truth. But, you can bet they, Via Benefits will have an excuse, they always do.
