How To Sign Up for Obamacare in New Mexico
To sign up for a health plan under the Affordable Care Act you can go directly to the online health insurance marketplace for New Mexico -- or you can get help in person or over the phone.
Where's the New Mexico Health Care Exchange?
The New Mexico insurance exchange can be found at NMHIX. That’s where you will learn about your health coverage options. When you are ready to make a purchase, NMHIX will direct you to the federal marketplace at HealthCare.gov if you are an individual or to the New Mexico SHOP if you are a small employer. If you see a plan you like, you'll be guided through the enrollment process online.
Getting In-Person Help with Enrollment
In New Mexico, if you need help understanding your options for coverage under Obamacare or signing up for a plan, you can get free assistance from a certified navigator or from a licensed health insurance agent or broker.
Navigators (often called "enrollment counselors" in New Mexico) can explain your options, answer your questions, and help you apply for the plan you choose -- but they can’t legally recommend a specific plan for you.
Private insurance agents or brokers can also help you understand your health care coverage options under Obamacare. Unlike government-trained navigators and counselors, they are allowed to suggest the best plan for you.
Find a navigator: To find an enrollment counselor, see the Find a Counselor page at NMHIX.
