  •  Here's the thing about who has paid? (26+ / 0-)

    It's not like they collect your money when you sign up. When I got my Anthem Blue Cross plan through Covered Ca confirmed it was nearly two months until I was able to pay them. I even called them TWICE (which is not easy, given their phone tree) to make sure my new policy wouldn't be canceled for non-payment. I was reassured that yes, I had a policy and that the billing department hadn't caught up with all the new policies yet.

    They finally sent me a letter instructing me on how to pay through their website. I set up a payment to be deducted through my checking account and after WEEKS had gone by I finally sent them a check through the mail. The first online payment never was processed. I signed up in November and my first payment wasn't processed until February 20th. And that's with me actively asking them to please take my money, because I myself didn't count it as real until I paid them.

    So yeah, paying your first premium can take some time. Check back in two months to answee that question.

    The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts.
