Convenient Ways to Pay Your Bill

Your payment keeps your coverage active.

  1. Each month you will get a bill for your premium. You can continue to use your benefits as long as you keep your payments current.
  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. Log in to Blue Access for MembersSM(BAM) for payment options and up to date claim details.
