Premium Payment Deadline Extended to Jan. 24 for NEW ACA Members
New members with individual Affordable Care Act (ACA) plans with effective dates of Jan. 1, 2019, now have until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 24, to pay their first month’s premiums. Although the payment deadline is extended, members must pay before they can use their benefits.
The Jan. 24 extension DOES NOT apply to renewing ACA members. It only applies to new members with Jan. 1, 2019, effective dates.
