Frequently Asked Questions

  • What's included in my monthly bill and how can I pay?

    When you’re searching for a new health plan, you’ll find how much each plan’s monthly payment is. That set monthly amount, or premium, is what keeps your coverage active. When you visit a doctor, you might also need to make payments for things like your copay or deductible: A copay is a set fee you’ll always pay when you visit your doctor or pick up your prescription, even after you meet your deductible.

    To find your current bills and review your payment history, please log in to our secure payment portal.

  • Is there a way I can setup automatic payments?

    Your monthly health insurance bill is what keeps your plan active. It’s important to pay your bill by its due date every month or you could lose coverage.

    Auto Bill Pay helps you set up automatic payments every month, so you don’t forget to pay your health plan bill. You can sign up for Auto Bill Pay by logging in to our payment portal or visiting the Payments and Billing section in Blue Access for MembersSM.

  • Why did I have to pay for my doctor's visit or procedure?

    When it’s time to pay for your doctor’s visit or health care procedure, there are a few balances that may need to be paid by you instead of your insurance: the deductible, coinsurance, and copay.

    A deductible is the amount you’ll have to pay for most care before your health plan starts paying. Coinsurance, or the amount of the bill not covered by your insurance, will kick in after you meet your deductible. You may also have a copay, or a low, preset cost you’ll have to pay towards your doctor’s visit or prescription.

    Learn about your deductible and out-of-pocket costs.
