  1. Only thing I got is a written notice from OPD that I was past due. Remembered seeing a new style billing statement online last month, so figured they were changing the billing service and a glitch ensued. Called OPD and the recording said I was up to date. When I checked my account on line recently, it again showed a ‘0’ balance but still had a past due indicator. Guess the “glitch” hasn’t been worked out yet but I know I’m ok.
