Help clients explore special enrollment opportunities

February 10, 2017

New Mexicans who don’t have health insurance or who experience changes in their lives that can affect their coverage may not be aware of special enrollment.
 
Special enrollment allows eligible New Mexicans to sign up for health insurance on the Exchange outside of the open enrollment period. Special enrollment may also allow those already enrolled but who’ve experienced certain life events to change coverage. Eligible events include:

  • Marriage
  • Divorce
  • Childbirth or adoption
  • Death in the family
  • Loss of employer-sponsored health insurance
  • A change in financial status that may affect eligibility for subsidies
