Payment Options

For members who buy their medical health plans through us, we offer a variety of different payment options.

For members who bought their health plan through a public Exchange (e.g., Maryland Health Connection, DC Health Link or Healthcare.gov for Virginia residents), CareFirst will mail you a bill. Upon receipt of your first bill, and for all future bills, you can make a payment with any of the options detailed below.

Note: If you buy insurance through your employer, check with your Human Resources representative about your payment options.
