Big changes are coming for health care consumers starting October 1, 2013, just six days from today, with the launch of health insurance exchanges, or marketplaces, where consumers can shop for and apply for private health insurance plans. The exchanges are going online, here in New Mexico and nationally for both individuals and businesses.
Starting January 1, 2014, when the Affordable Care Act or ‘Obamacare’ takes effect, health care consumers will have more choices—at lower costs—than ever before.

Once covered by an NMHIX plan, you’ll have access to quality care like never before.
