Affinity Health Plan
P.O. Box 28535

Please include your member ID number in the memo area of your check.
When you first enroll in your plan, there is a 10-day grace period for your first payment. This means that you will have until the 10th day of the month your coverage begins to make your first payment. If your first payment is not received within 10 days, your plan may be cancelled. For all other months your payment is due by the 1st of every month.
Enrollment is not effective until Affinity receives your first premium payment and sends a confirmation to the state. The date when both actions are complete will be considered your "Coverage Effective Date."
If you fail to make your monthly premium payments during the plan year, your coverage may be terminated retroactively to the last date to which a payment applies.
