In addition to making payments through standard mail, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina members can make premium payments online via ACH or credit card free of charge. Once members are enrolled in Blue Connect, they simply sign in and select the "Manage Billing and Payments" tab.
As of 2015, cards with the Visa, MasterCard and Discover logo are accepted and charged at the time payment on the individual or family plan is initiated. Payments drawn from a bank account are typically withdrawn within 24 to 48 hours of payment. Customers can also set up recurring automatic monthly payments of their premiums directly from their checking or savings accounts.
