Insurance companies handle premium payments differently. Follow your insurer’s payment instructions.
IMPORTANT: You must pay your premium for your coverage to start
Once you enroll, you must pay your first premium directly to the insurance company — not the Health Insurance Marketplace. Your coverage won’t start until you pay your first premium.
Not sure you’re enrolled?
- Log in to your HealthCare.gov account. Select "Start a new application or update an existing one.” Click on your name in the top right of the screen and choose “My applications & coverage.” You’ll see a summary of your coverage.
- If you don’t see your summary, or still aren’t sure you’ve finished enrollment, call your insurance company. They can confirm if you have enrolled and paid your first premium.
- If you’re having trouble, contact the Marketplace Call Center.
