4. TERMINATION. We reserve the right to terminate your use of the eBill Service at any time with or without cause. We may immediately terminate your use of the eBill Service if: you breach any agreement with us (including breaching any provisions of a benefit contract) or we have reason to believe that there has been or may be unauthorized use of your User ID, password, or the eBill Service.
5. PAYMENT TYPES. a. Recurring Payments. You can set up a recurring payment that automatically applies each monthly premium to a payment method in the amount of days prior to the due date that you select. Your Health Plan has the right to modify the payment withdrawal date at any time in accordance with applicable automated clearing house rules. You can end recurring payments at any time by removing the recurring payment arrangement by logging into the eBill platform at https://www.mybenefitshome.com/billing/login. Recurring payments are only available when paying the full invoice amount. Invoice amounts can vary in specific situations and your eBill account will be debited such invoice amount. We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to terminate your recurring payment schedule at any time with or without cause. We may immediately terminate your recurring payment schedule if: the criteria of the termination clause above is met, if a failed payment occurs for your specific payment method two consecutive times, or if your membership in individual health plan coverage with the Health Plan is terminated. b. One-Time Payment. You can make a one-time payment for the invoice associated with your current coverage period at any time by logging onto the eBill platform. If you had an outstanding balance from a previous invoice, this balance will be rolled onto the invoice for your next coverage period. One-time payments can be made with the payment method(s) available to use within the eBill platform. To make a one-time payment after you’ve signed up for recurring payments, you will need to remove your recurring payment first. c. Guest Pay. You can make one-time guest payments via the guest pay user flow. Your Bill Account Number and Invoice Number(s) are necessary to begin the guest pay user flow. The Bill Account Number and Invoice Number are available to members on paper invoices; the guest pay flow digitally replicates the process of making a one-time payment via mail. You agree not to disclose or otherwise make your Bill Account Number and Invoice Number(s) available to anyone not authorized to view and access the information available on eBill. Your Health Plan shall have no liability for unauthorized access to your information or any unauthorized payments of your bills
