  When I buy an insurance plan, how do I make payments?
 
In most cases, when you complete your application you'll provide a credit card number or a check written to the health insurance company for the first premium payment. Typically, your credit card will not be charged nor will your check be cashed until you are approved for coverage. If you are not approved for coverage, or if you cancel your application, your card will not be charged and any check payment you made will be returned or refunded.
 
Once you've been approved for coverage, your ongoing premium payments are paid to your health insurance company typically on a monthly or quarterly basis. Insurance companies typically offer several payment options including monthly billings to be paid by check or credit card, automatic bank drafts or automated credit card charges. Please note that credit card billing of premiums is optional and you can obtain coverage without using that method of payment.
