To avoid the monthly $25 billing fee, you have the option to sign up Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) or to use Medical Mutual's EmployerLink and “opt-in” to Go Paperless.
When you have your Funding Rates and all other amounts due automatically deducted from your bank account (via direct debit), no billing fee applies. If you wish to pay by check, you will be charged a monthly billing fee of $25. If paying by direct debit, the payment, in the full amount as billed, will be deducted from your account on the first business day of every month.
