Self employed and turning 26. I had been on my parents plan and sending them a check every month since it's cheaper than buying my own, but now I need to shop for myself... anywhere to get bonus miles?

BCBS takes Visa and MC. I put it on my CSP every month automatically.

BCBS in Michigan will NOT take credit cards. Really ticks me off. Pay them $1300 a month for health care insurance and can't pay it with any card.

If you are in a location where you can get the Kaiser Permenente group then they accept credit cards.
Good Luck

My expensive insurance provider has taken MC and VISA
for years, and recently added AX, which has been critical to
making spend for the various lucrative AX card MR promos.

Never mind miles: my health insurer has decided to stop offering health insurance to me, and 20,000 other Oregonians. Sigh.

Anthem Doesn't take CC on their website, but will take CC payments over the phone, no additional fee. Call the number on your card.

You really need to get a job that offers health insurance or a spouse with same. You won't be 26 forever. I wish someone had warned me about the true costs of being self-employed when I was your age. Bonus miles/points is a triviality compared to what you stand to lose when your claim is denied or your insurance is canceled just because you passed a birthday. OK, just my two cents. Maybe things will change in 2014 but I wouldn't plan my life around it. The first concern should be, who will actually sell your the health insurance as a self-employed person and DO THEY ACTUALLY PAY CLAIMS?
