Do not send payment with your change form. Once your enrollment change is approved, we’ll send you a billing statement every month showing you the premium you owe and the due date. You must pay your monthly premium in advance. If you indicated on the change form that you want your premium withheld from your Social Security Administration (SSA) or Railroad Retirement Board (RRB) check, we will contact you.
Important: If we do not receive your premiums on a timely basis and reasonable attempts have been made to collect them, your membership in the 65C Plus health plan and prescription drug coverage, if applicable, will be terminated.
