Medical Assistance for Employed Persons with Disabilities (MA-EPD) premiums
How do I know how much my MA-EPD premium is?
Your worker will calculate your premium. You will get a bill telling you how much you owe. Contact your worker if you do not receive a bill within 60 days or if you lost it. After you pay the first premium, you will get a bill each month from the Department of Human Services (DHS).
Can my MA-EPD coverage start before I pay my premium?
No, you must pay your premium before your coverage can start.
What if I have unpaid premiums from previous months?
You must pay those premiums and your current premium before your coverage can start again. Some people may have an approved good cause for late payment.
How do I pay my MA-EPD premium?
Your first premium must be paid to the county. It can be paid either by mail or in person at your local county office. You should receive a self-addressed envelope from the county with your first premium bill. If you do not have the envelope, contact your worker for the mailing address.
After your first premium is paid, you will get a bill each month from DHS. They are mailed on the 4th of each month. Payment is due by the 15th of the next month for coverage the following month.
Example: The premium on the bill mailed August 4 is due September 15 for October coverage.
You can pay your ongoing monthly premiums:
After you have paid your first premium to the county, you can pay your monthly premium online by checking account withdrawal or credit card. Online payments made by 5 p.m. on a business day will be credited that day. Online payments made after 5 p.m. on a business day, on weekends or holidays will be credited the next business day.
Be sure to allow enough time for your premium to arrive by the due date on the bill. Do not mail cash. Send your check or money order, and the stub from your premium notice, to:
PO Box 64835
St. Paul, MN 55164-0835
DHS discontinued the automatic withdrawal payment option for all health care programs. For enrollees already using automatic withdrawal, the last automatic payment for MA-EPD was taken Dec. 10, 2011. Future premiums and any other amounts due must be paid using one of the options listed above.
What if I cannot pay my premium?
Send a written request that includes:
Mail or fax your request to:
DHS - MA-EPD Good Cause
Can I pay premiums in advance?
Yes, if you pay by mail or online.
