If your household was directly affected by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and you are unable to pay your bill, we may be able to assist you. Foremost is extending a grace period for late payments until at least May 1, 2020. If your payment is late during this time, we will send you a reminder bill with an extended due date (rather than a cancellation notice for non-payment). This process will happen automatically; there is no need for you to call us to request an extension.
All other billing remains unchanged, with bills going out with their regular due dates. Foremost will continue to monitor this situation, and will update you as we make any additional changes to help you maintain your insurance coverage.
If you have any billing questions, please call Foremost at 1-800-532-4221.
