Frequently Asked Questions

How often are statements sent to patients? What if my statement does not reflect my payment?

Statements are sent once a month, however your payments may not reflect in the statement if the statement is generated prior to us processing your payment.

What if I did not receive my statement?

Please contact our billing line at (808) 469-4900 or email us your most updated contact information at Please be sure to include the name in which services are rendered, your full street address, and any other pertinent information such as insurance coverage(s).

What should I do if the online payment system does not accept my credit card?

Please check your credit limit and review your card and billing information, make any changes necessary, and try again. If the transaction still does not go through, you could also try to make a payment with an alternative credit card, or send UHP a check as payment.

How do I receive a receipt for my payment?

What is the difference between copay, deductible, premium, and coinsurance?

Copay is the amount due whenever a provider renders services. The copay is determined by your health plan.  If you have questions on how your copay is determined, please contact your health insurance.  Typically, a copay is due at time of service.

Deductible is the amount due for eligible medical expenses in a calendar year. After a deductible is met, you may still have an out of pocket expense for services such as a copay or a co-insurance.

Premium is the monthly or quarterly payment due to your insurance company regardless of you using your health insurance. Premiums are usually paid in monthly or quarterly installments.

Coinsurance is a health care cost sharing between you and your insurance company. The cost sharing ranges from 80/20 to even 50/50. For example, if your coinsurance is 80/20, that means that your insurer covers 80% of annual medical expenses, therefore you pay the remaining 20%. The cost sharing stops when medical expenses reach your out-of-pocket maximum. If your medical expenses in a calendar year exceeds out-of-pocket limit, then your insurer covers all the remaining costs.

Elective and cosmetic procedures may not count towards your out of pocket limit

What if my insurance was not billed? I received a statement; however, I do not see any indication of my insurance paying.

It is possible that our staff did not receive the most updated insurance information.  Please contact our billing line at (808) 469-4900 or email us at
