Be Covered New Mexico

New Mexico has among the highest uninsured rates in the nation, with nearly one in five of our residents lacking medical coverage. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) created a grassroots educational campaign called Be Covered New Mexico to help New Mexicans understand how the new health care law impacts them and what steps they need to take to gain access to health insurance via the online health care marketplace or through BeWellNM: the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange.

Be Covered New Mexico works with community partners to provide easy-to-understand information, in both English and Spanish, as well as practical tools and tips with the ultimate goal of educating and enrolling uninsured New Mexicans.

In 2013, we reached thousands of New Mexicans face-to-face who were eager to learn more about the Affordable Care Act by offering Be Covered presentations and information at events throughout the state. We will continue our Be Covered New Mexico efforts in 2014, helping our fellow citizens understand their health coverage options.
