What types of payment are acceptable for premium payment?
We accept debit or credit cards with a Visa or Mastercard logo to make your payment.

Is there a fee when I pay my premium online?
No. Online premium payment is provided at no additional charge.

Can I stop receiving paper statements?
No. We are required to send all policyholders a premium statement via US Mail every month. If you have scheduled recurring payments, a message will appear on your invoice.

Can I pay for more than one month at a time?
Yes. You can prepay your premium for up to a year in advance. It is the policyholder's responsibility to monitor the balance on their account.

Can I make a partial payment?
Yes. Please note that full premium payment must be received prior to due date in order to ensure your health insurance coverage is not disrupted.

Can I make an online payment on the last day before my due date and not lose my coverage?
Yes, however we suggest you schedule your payment for at least 3 business days before the actual payment date.

If I make a payment on a Saturday, Sunday or federal holiday, when will it post to my account? Your payment will be posted the following normal business day.

Why did I receive a delinquency notice if I have scheduled recurring payments?
If you scheduled your premium payment after the due date listed on your invoice, you may receive a delinquency notice. If you have made your payment, please check with your bank to ensure your payment was processed. If your bank has processed payment you may disregard the notice.

Why isn't my payment reflected on my invoice?
You may have scheduled your premium payment on a day after Providence processes and mails invoicing statements, therefore payment may not be reflected on your invoice. Make sure to print and save you Payment Confirmation page as proof of payment.
