Enrolling and Making Payments
- I recently applied for coverage. How do I make my first payment (binder payment)?
If you didn’t make a payment when you applied for coverage, you’ll need to make your payment in full before your coverage will start. Look for a payment letter and a bill in the mail.
It takes up to 10 days to process your payment. If your payment is still processing when your coverage takes effect and you need care right away, there will be a few extra steps to verify your payment and coverage first.
Pay by phone or online 24/7
You can pay with a credit card, a debit card or by electronic funds transfer (EFT). Follow the prompts and select the option ‘Make a Payment’.

- You can also pay your bill, view or print ID cards, check benefits and more – from your home PC or any mobile device.
3. Set up autopay
Set it and go, so you don’t have to worry about missing a payment. Simply log in and follow the prompts to "pay my bill" and set up autopay.
4. Keep your doctor’s name handy
Stay healthy and save money by going to doctors in your plan’s network. If you have myBlue, be sure to start with your assigned primary care doctor. Make sure you fill prescriptions at in-network pharmacies, like Walgreens. Remember, if you get your prescriptions filled out-of-network, like at CVS/Target pharmacy or Navarro, you’ll pay full price.
5. Schedule an appointment
- Schedule a $0 wellness checkup with a doctor in your plan’s network. If you have myBlue, be sure to start with your assigned primary care doctor. After this visit, you and your doctor will have a clearer picture of your overall health, and you can work together to make a plan to live healthier for the rest of the year.
- If you’re already under a doctor’s care, be sure to schedule an appointment to stay on a healthy path and get any medications you may need.
- Can I pay my premium bill online?
- What is autopay?
Autopay is an automatic withdrawal of your monthly premium payment from a checking or savings account. (Debit and credit cards are not accepted.) If you are enrolled in an individual plan (not an employer-provided plan), you can set up autopay online at floridablue.com.
Log into your member account, and follow the steps starting on page 5 of these tips.
- You can also set up autopay by calling the customer service number on your member ID card or 1-800-FLA-BLUE (352-2583).
- Be sure to set up your autopay by the 5th of the month in order for the next month’s payment to be drafted.
- When signing up for autopay, be sure that your email address is entered correctly. This is required so we can send you emails about your monthly draft.
- If you make changes to your plan that affect your monthly bill amount, or if you are delinquent, we may pause your automatic payments and send you a paper bill. Once we receive your payment, your autopay will restart.
- If you are delinquent for two months in a row, we may cancel your automatic payments. This is to make sure you know how much your autopay will draft from your bank account each month. You can restart autopay any time after you pay your bill in full.
How can I cancel my autopay?
To cancel autopay, call the customer service number on your member ID card or 1-800-FLA-BLUE (352-2583).

If you change plans, but your plan name did not change, you will not receive a new card automatically.

- Why doesn't my member ID card show everyone covered under my contract or health policy?
ID cards for most plans currently print only the subscriber of the health plan. Names of individuals covered under your health plan are stored in the magnetic stripe on the back of each card and within Florida Blue systems. Your provider’s (hospitals, labs, pharmacies, and doctors) office uses this stripe to identify people covered under your health plan.

If you selected your plan through the Federal Marketplace then please contact the Marketplace at 1-800-318-2596 to have the spelling of your name corrected.
