New Mexico Human Services Department (HSD), beWellnm (New Mexico’s Official Health Insurance Marketplace), the New Mexico Office of the Superintendent of Insurance (OSI), and the New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department (TRD), announced the launch of Easy Enrollment. This new program allows New Mexicans to check a box on their state income tax form to see if they qualify for low-cost or no-cost health care coverage through Medicaid or beWellnm.
Are you turning 26?
Now, here is how you can get your own health coverage when you turn 26
If you have health insurance under a parent’s plan and are turning 26, you need to take action. If you don’t take action by your birthday, you have 60 days after, or you may wind up with no health coverage.
Can you enroll in a job-based plan?
If your employer offers health insurance you haven’t been enrolled in, losing your parent’s coverage qualifies you to enroll in the plan outside its yearly Open Enrollment Period. Contact your human resources representative before turning 26 to learn your next steps.
Or, you can enroll today in your own beWellnm health insurance plan and see what discounts you can use today.
