- Monthly bill – You can pay by mail each month (we will provide you a monthly bill). You can also make advance payments. If making a payment for the entire year, you will only need to submit one bill along with a check for the total premium amount due for the year.
Note: Whatever payment option you choose—Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT), Social Security check withholding or monthly bill—will apply to your entire premium. In other words, you cannot pay part of the premium with a benefit check and part with a personal check or automatic withdrawal.
1If you are receiving help from a plan sponsor (former employer, union or trust administrator) or State Pharmaceutical Assistance Program (SPAP) you have the right to elect automatic deductions from your Social Security benefit check. However, it is important that you know that Social Security does not know if you have other coverage that pays part of your premium, even when the other coverage is paying part of your premium to your prescription drug plan. If you choose to have your payments automatically deducted from your Social Security benefit check, the deductions for the premiums will be higher than they should be. Your Prescription Drug Plan will need to give you a refund for the premium amount paid by your other coverage. You may experience delays in obtaining a refund for the excess amounts.
