Dear NMSU Employee
New Mexicans have the opportunity to choose high quality health insurance for themselves and their families through the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange. If you are hired into a benefit eligible position, you may choose either health insurance coverage through NMSU, or you may decide to purchase coverage through the exchange. Employees not eligible for health benefits through NMSU, including temporary and student employees, may choose to purchase coverage through the insurance exchange.
If you acquire coverage through the exchange your premiums will be paid 100% by you, unless you qualify for a premium subsidy from the government. The attached exchange notice provides information you will need for the exchange marketplace. Specific information on the New Mexico exchange can be found at www.nmhix.com. If you want to research available plans or enroll in coverage, you will need to go to https://www.bewellnm.com/ or call 1-855-99-NMHIX. Information about NMSU benefits can be found at http://benefits.nmsu.edu/ or questions sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
