Blue Cross and HMO Louisiana members should complete this form. Attach a blank check marked "VOID" and mail or fax the completed form along with the voided check to:

Back to topWhat types of credit cards do you take?
We accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express credit cards.  We also accept online payments from your bank checking account. Back to topI made an online payment with my credit card and got a message from you that it was declined. How did that happen?
One of the most common causes for your credit card being declined is if the address does not match up with the credit card. When you pay with a credit card, you need to make sure the address you enter is the same one that's on your credit card - even if it's not the same as your Blue Cross billing address. Our system will automatically decline your credit card if the address and the card don't match up.Back to topHow soon will my account be credited after I pay it online?
