When will I get my bill?

Depending on the plan you select, you may be able to pay your first monthly bill when you apply for coverage online using our "Pay Now" option. All future bills must be paid directly to the plan, not through your Covered California account. 

If you do not pay your first bill online, your health insurance company will send you a bill about two weeks after it receives your application or renewal. The payment due date will be printed on the bill. Please send your payment to your health insurance company before the deadline. If you pay your bill by mail, be sure you send it in time for the insurance company to receive your payment by the payment date printed on the bill. Your health insurance company also may accept payment through the phone or online, which would be faster than mailing your payment. Contact your health insurance company for more information about payment options. 

If you get a bill from your health insurance plan or family dental plan, please follow the instructions on the bill for making a payment. If you have not received a bill, contact your selected plan or make your first payment using the specific information listed below for each company.

Children’s dental coverage is included with your health insurance coverage. You will not receive a separate invoice.

Payment for all health insurance or family dental plans must be made directly to the company. Pay your health insurance company or family dental company — not Covered California — no later than the payment deadline on the invoice.

Note: If you miss a premium payment and lose your coverage, you will have to wait for the next open-enrollment period or until a qualifying life event occurs to sign up and get coverage again.
