Anthem & Health Net CA Premium Payment Extended to 1/31

Anthem Blue Cross just announced that individual & family plan premiums for January 1 effective dates will be extended from the 1/15 cutoff to 1/31/14 cutoff.

That gives everyone with Anthem another 2 weeks to pay the January premiums.   This applies to both Covered CA enrollments and to private market off-exchange enrollments.


Update:1/16/2014 -- Health Net has also announced the same change of deadline to 1/31/14 for premium payments.


  1. Does this mean that someone could (for example) have surgery on Jan 10 and never pay their premium? Who would pay the providers? If there is a subsidy due, would that still be paid to the carrier?

  2. Thanks for the update.

    From my experience, Anthem is really giving themselves an extension.

    We have made two full initial payments in December. Neither payment has been processed by Anthem. Every promise they made about fixing the situation has been broken. It appears that we are not going to be able to use the insurance until February. I am not looking forward to applying for reimbursements for the necessities from January.

  3. It was useful information for me, while I was visiting the page before. Thanks Dave.
