Convenient Ways to Pay Your Bill
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) offers many convenient ways for you to pay your monthly premium for your individual health care coverage plan. You may choose what works best for you.
If you applied for your health care plan on Get Covered, The Official Health Exchange, you can register and make your first premium payment .
If you did not apply on the Exchange, simply follow the steps for payments by phone.
If you are already a member:
To make a payment, please log into your Blue Access for MembersSM account and look for the Billing and Payment section.
Call BCBSIL Customer Service at 800-538-8833 and select Make a Payment from the Existing Member options to pay by debit card, one-time electronic funds transfer (EFT), or set up a recurring EFT with our EZ Blue Payment OptionSM Program.
Mail a personal check, money order or cashier's check to BCBSIL. To do so, be sure you:
- Mail your payment to the address on your bill.
- Make the check payable to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois.
- Write your account/member ID number on your check, cashier's check or money order.
- Include the payment coupon that was sent to you with your bill.
- Send your payment at least 5 business days in advance of the payment due date to ensure timely posting to your account.
- The in-person option is not available for your first payment. Following payments can be made with cash at MoneyGram® locations near you (including most Walmarts, ACE Cash Express and CVS stores) . MoneyGram locations in Walmart and Albertsons stores also take debit card payments.
- Bring a copy of your bill, which includes your account or billing ID number and your "receive code," with your payment.
Remember: You can continue to use your health care coverage as long as you keep your payments up to date.
