How Do I Sign Up for Obamacare in New Mexico?
The easiest way to sign up for a health plan under the Affordable Care Act is to go to the online health insurance marketplace for New Mexico. If you're not ready to enroll right now, you can get more information online, over the phone, or in person.
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.
If you prefer to apply with a paper application, call the NMHIX customer service center or contact a Health Care Guide using the information just below.
You might not see any mention of Obamacare or the Affordable Care Act when you visit the exchange website, but rest assured you’ve landed in the right place. The exchange was established solely for the purpose of informing consumers about the Affordable Care Act and providing plans under the law.
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 Health Care Guide or from a certified agent or broker.
Health Care Guides 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 are allowed to offer suggestions about particular plans.
To find a New Mexico certified Health Care Guide, see Find a Health Care Guide at NMHIX.
To find a New Mexico certified agent or broker, see Find an Agent at NMHIX.
Getting Help by Phone
If you want answers over the phone, call the toll-free number for NMHIX at 855-996-6449. Telephone support is available 24/7.
