HBWD is now offering online payments by using the Illinois E-Pay system offered by the Illinois State Treasurer's Office. E-Pay is a self-service electronic payment program allowing payments to be made on the user's timetable without leaving their home. E-Pay is designed for local governments and state agencies to offer users of its services easier, faster payment choices. The Illinois E-Pay system accepts Visa, MasterCard, and E-Checks. The payor will not incur any additional charge for making payments on the site.

Monthly premiums are based on the applicant’s monthly income. Premiums are due on the 20th of each month. Monthly statements are mailed to participants near the first of each month.
