What if I want insurance because I’m having a baby or adopting a child?
If you didn’t sign up for a health insurance plan during the last open enrollment period, having a baby qualifies you to sign up now. Find out about this special enrollment period at bcbsnm.com. You only have 60 days from the birth or adoption of your child to enroll to get health insurance, so sign up as soon as you can.
Your new health plan will cover your care before and after your child is born. And the coverage is good -- you will not have to pay copays or added costs for a lot of the services during and after pregnancy that ensure a healthy pregnancy:
Your new health plan also covers office visits to midwives and doctors. Much of the costs of giving birth and your hospital stay are also covered. If you have any complications during the birth, those will be covered as well.
