Remember to pay your monthly premium to your health insurance company

If you enrolled in a 2017 health plan, you must pay your premium to your health insurance company, not to the Health Insurance Marketplace. Your coverage won’t start until you do.

How do I pay my premium?

  • Insurance companies handle payments differently and set their own payment deadlines.
  • Follow the instructions from your insurer about how and when to make your premium payment.
  • If you haven’t received details on how to pay, contact your insurer.

How do I know if I paid?

  • Call your insurance company directly to confirm your payment status.
  • Find their phone number on your plan brochure or their website.
