Convenient Ways to Pay Your Bill

Your payment keeps your coverage active.

  2. Make sure you pay your first premium, before you go to the doctor, fill a prescription or use any of your other plan benefits.
  3. Login to Blue Access for MembersSM(BAM) for payment options and up to date claim details.
