How to pay your monthly premium to start your coverage

Follow your insurance company’s instructions on how to pay.
  • Pay online. You might be able to pay your first premium through your Marketplace account or through your insurance company.
  • If you can't pay online, your insurance company should tell you how to pay your premium. If they didn't, reach out to them.
  • If you aren’t sure you paid, check your Marketplace account to find out if your coverage is active.
