To make your first payment:
Renewing customers, you'll receive an invoice with instructions for how to pay.
New customers, you'll have two options when you enroll: pay now or later. If you choose to pay later, you'll receive an invoice that will give you the option to pay by check or pay online. You'll need the payment ID from the invoice slip to make your payment.
Some important information to note:
If you haven't yet used the Premera secure member website, you'll need to create an account.
You may be prompted to accept the new terms and conditions.

If you're unable to pay your bill in a way that complies with this policy, your plan could be canceled due to non-payment.
