Although you have chosen your plan in the Marketplace, you will pay the premium to the insurance company directly. Follow the instructions from your insurer about what forms of payment are accepted and the due date of your first premium.
After you pay your premium, you'll receive a welcome kit and your benefits card from your insurance company. You can always call your insurance company if you have questions.
If you select a plan on Healthcare.gov, you will see an orange message indicating you must make payment to be covered on January 1. (see photo above for an example)
