Payment Process
  • Access the electronic payment system and enter your COBRA/Low Cost/Self-Pay UID# (without the dashes);
  • Follow the step-by-step instructions; be sure to specify the month(s) you are paying for.
  • After entering your method of payment, you will receive a confirmation number and e-mail (sent to the e-mail address you provided on the electronic payment system).
  • NOTE: Separate electronic payment accounts must be created for each individual making payments.
    • Example: Member divorces spouse and adult dependent turns age 26. Both the ex-spouse and dependent elect COBRA coverage; each individual must setup their own electronic payment accounts.

Payments made from a checking/savings account before 11:00 a.m. CST will post to your account the next business day; payments made from a checking/savings account after 11:00 a.m. CST will post to your account within two (2) business days.
