If the owner does not have two forms of payment and only has one, three, 2, months wellness plan premium will be required at the time of enrollment and one of those payments will be held as a “security deposit” on the account for 11 months and used as the final payment of the plan year.

The hold will be released within 24-48hours depending on the client’s personal banking system/provider.
