Meanwhile, I did receive the HCCUA package in the mail, however at that time I did not study the contents at all, and NEVER complete any forms, and NEVER returned any forms back to HCCUA. I then considered the case closed, and NOT to pursue membership with HCCUA any more.
Today, November 27, 2012 I noticed an bank overdraft alert sent to my email, and upon checking my online bank statement, I noticed pending amount of $39.95 from Visa HCCUA xxxxx5400. Further investigation revealed that HCCUA had deducted a further 3 (three) payments of $39.95 from my bank account, started August 21, 2012. I was furious, and very puzzled.
I contacted the customer service line 866-227-5400, enquired about this amount and was told that indeed my wife is a registered member of HCCUA, and 4x the membership amount has been deducted already from my bank account. I was never aware of these deductions until today. And very surprised that my wife 'became' a member, as I never authorized this legally with the completion of the relevant forms of HCCUA.
I asked for immediate cancellation of this membership. I ended the call.
Later the same day, I called the customer service line of HCCUA again, wanted to speak to the supervisor. I was transferred to a certain AMANDA. I explained the issue of WHY my wife became a member of HCCUA, WHY HCCUA decided to bill my bank account of $39.95 4x without my permission on a returned HCCUA form, whereby I was told that according to the recorded conversation between me and agent Barbara on 08/18/2012 I gave HCCUA verbal permission to allow the membership deductions from my bank account.
I asked her if she can forward me the proof about this permission, she would NOT let me have it. She refused.
I demanded a full refund of 4x 39.95 ($160.00) deducted from my bank account over a 4 month period, for fraudulently accessing my bank account without my permission on their official form, whereby she denied my request.
Note that my family and I did NOT use ANY of the so-called benefits of the so-called insurance plan during this period, in which HCCUA unilaterally assign membership to my wife, without her (or mine) approval to do that.
