ALBUQUERQUE — BeWellnm, also known as New Mexico’s health insurance exchange, began its special enrollment Monday for the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange.
The enrollment period, which continues through May 15, is a special three-month reopening of the Affordable Care Act insurance marketplace.
“BeWellnm encourages all uninsured New Mexicans to begin the enrollment process as soon as possible because of the limited amount of time to find comprehensive, affordable health insurance options. People who have lost job-based insurance during the pandemic or remain uninsured may not realize that they are now eligible to enroll in the marketplace beginning today,” said Maureen Manring, director of communication and outreach for beWellnm.
Virtual appointments can be arranged at bewellnm.com or by calling 833-862-3935.
New Mexico health insurance companies participating in the beWellnm marketplace include:
• Ambetter from Western Sky Community
• Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico
• Friday Health Plans
• Molina Health Care of New Mexico
• True Health New Mexico.
Financial help is also available to New Mexicans who qualify. A premium subsidy helps pay for health insurance, and the amount is based on income, family size and other related factors.
