How Are Premiums Paid?

By on | No Comments

Question: What will be the mechanism for the payment of monthly premiums in the Exchange?

Answer: The premiums are collected by the health plan issuer (insurance company) not Covered California. So you would get a bill from Blue Shield or Kaiser just as you do now. If you are eligible for a subsidy, the subsidy money goes from the federal government directly to the carrier and the carrier bills you for the remainder - the net premium amount.
