Paying premiums in a disaster or emergency

If you're in a Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C) , other Medicare health plan , or Medicare drug plan (Part D) , you're still responsible for paying your premium on time even in an emergency or disaster.  If you don't pay your premium on time, your plan may disenroll you. 

You can make sure your premiums are paid on time by asking your plan to withhold your premium from your Social Security check or by paying with electronic funds transfer through your bank.  

What if my plan disenrolled me?

 You can ask your plan to reconsider its decision and get your coverage back.

How can I find contact information for my plan?

Generally, you can find your plan's contact information on your plan membership card. Or, you can search for your plan's contact information. You can also call us at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).
