BeWellnm, New Mexico’s official health insurance exchange, announces the final days of the 2023 open enrollment period providing New Mexicans with affordable health insurance. People who enroll at beWellnm.com by 11:59 p.m. Jan. 15 will have the opportunity to receive low-cost or no-cost health insurance beginning Feb. 1.
Bruce Gilbert, CEO for beWellnm, encouraged New Mexicans without health insurance to apply.
“With new state assistance available, health insurance may be more affordable than ever. Some people can even find no-cost insurance options, so shop, compare and enroll in coverage at beWellnm.com by Jan. 15, 2023,” he said. “Certified enrollment counselors or brokers are also available to help with enrollment at no charge.”
This year New Mexicans can receive lower monthly payments, co-pays, and deductibles due to the state’s Health Care Affordability Fund. Also, the new Turquoise Plan, exclusive to beWellnm, provides New Mexicans with maximum financial protection by reducing out-of-pocket costs, while limiting the maximum amount they could owe during the 2023 plan year.
BeWellnm offers dozens of plan options across multiple carriers, including dental insurance. All health plans cover the 10 essential benefits such as doctor visits, hospital stays, maternity care, emergency room care, prescriptions, and more.
Federal law and regulations provide protections against pre-existing condition exclusions in health insurance coverage. Health plans must permit New Mexicans to enroll regardless of health status, age, gender, or other factors that may predict the use of health services.
The beWellnm team of certified enrollment counselors, agents, and brokers are free. They are always available to help those in need to review and explain their health insurance options through telephone assistance or virtual appointments at (833) 862-3935 or online by visiting beWellnm.com.
