You’ve just picked a health and dental plan. The hard part is over. But there’s one last step before you can start using your coverage – to pay your first month’s premium. This is what activates your coverage so you can start going to your doctor or pick up prescriptions.
Your insurance company will send you a bill in the mail. Learn how to make ongoing payments throughout the year.
If you signed up for a health and dental plan, you’ll receive two separate bills. Each company handles payments differently, so follow their instructions closely. Make sure to pay your premium on time each month. If you don’t, you could lose your coverage.
If you have any questions about paying your premium, or if you haven’t received a bill from them yet, call your insurance company directly.
