Bumping this again. Also see article https://www.forbes.com/sites/sebastianb ... 2248f5f9bf
If people weren't aware and had an EVgo membership, if you're still paying the $4.95 connection/session fee to start a DC FC session, you need to switch your plan ASAP.
On March 1, 2018, they came out with plans that have no monthly fee which don't have that any more. Problem is, they don't switch you over to it automatically. One person here (who's also on another forum w/me) wasn't aware of this. Another person on that other forum was also unaware.
It does seem borderline shady that they wouldn't automatically switch people over to a new plan as it makes no sense anyone would want to stick with that old plan. I did receive an email from them on 3/1/18 titled "New EVgo Pricing: Drive Farther and Pay Less!" It says:
Hi (my name),
