I’ve submitted my Marketplace application and subscribed to a plan, but I’m not done yet.You must pay your first health insurance premium
Start cover. Pay your health insurance company, not the marketplace.
When and how to pay health insurance premiums
After you register, your insurance company may contact you by phone, mail, or email with payment instructions. Payment methods vary by health insurance company, so please follow their instructions carefully. Please check the payment due date carefully and be sure to pay by the due date. Failure to meet the deadline may result in loss of health insurance coverage.
Call your insurance company if you have any questions about paying your premium, including whether you have received your premium. You can find the phone number in the plan brochure or visit the website.
Understand and use your new coverage
Once you’ve paid your premiums and completed your enrollment, you can use your new health plan to help pay for covered services such as doctor visits, prescription filling, and emergency care. Visit your health insurance website to see which prescribers, doctors, and other providers are covered by your new Marketplace plan.
Understanding what you can do will help you get the most out of your new health insurance. Stay healthy and get the care you need.
