At least within the individual-market Marketplace, insurers are required to accept money orders and pre-paid debit cards. They do not have to accept credit card or debit card payments unless states make that a requirement, although many insurers currently accept all of these forms of payment.
Therefore, it may vary from state to state and between insurers. Insurance companies prefer automatic bank drafts through a checking account, since this costs the least amount of money.
