Most carriers accept bank accounts, debit cards and credit cards as payment. If you need to update your account, you can log into your portal or call our office for help.
Why does Healtcare.gov keep emailing, calling and sending so many letters? How do I get it to stop?
As you may have already noticed, you probably received emails, phone calls or letters from the Marketplace or healthcare.gov shortly after you enrolled in your plan. They do that because you may need to submit further documentation to verify your income, citizenship or immigration status. As your agent, we take care of this for you. We can submit all the required documentation for you and will contact you if anything further is needed. If we are your agent and you do get any further notices or calls, let them know your agent is handling it, and hang up. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR SUBMIT ANY DOCUMENTS directly to healthcare.gov as this may adversely affect your coverage. Feel free to securely send us your documents with the link below. Remember having an agent is free!
