Insurance companies handle payments differently. Follow the instructions from your insurer about how and when to make your premium payment. You may be able to pay online.
How to pay your monthly premium at HealthCare.gov
- Log into your Marketplace account.
- Choose your application under “Your Existing Applications.”
- Click the blue button “Pay Your First Health Insurance Monthly Premium.”
- If online payment is available, choose the green button “Pay for Health Plan Now” to go to your insurance company’s website to pay.
Note: If your health insurance company doesn’t accept online payment, they should have contacted you with next steps. Reach out to them if you haven’t received details on how to pay or aren’t sure that you paid. For their phone number, check out your plan brochure or go to their website.
How to tell if your health insurance is active
If you’re not sure you’re enrolled, you can find out if your health insurance is active by checking your online Marketplace account. If you think you’re enrolled but have questions about your plan, you can reference your plan materials.
