If you missed the Nov. 1 open enrollment there is a new Special Enrollment Period that is taking place from February 15, 2021 to August 15, 2021. During this time, you can apply for a 2021 BCBSNM Individual health plan for yourself or your family without a qualifying event.
In most cases, you can only sign up for a health insurance plan during the open enrollment period. But if you’ve had a major life change lately, such as losing a job, you may qualify for the Special Enrollment Period.
Qualifying Life Events take in:
You have only 60 days after the qualifying life event to sign up or change your health plan during special enrollment. If you’re losing insurance through your job, then it’s only 30 days for COBRA. If you missed the Nov. 1 open enrollment and don’t qualify for the Special Enrollment Period, you can work straight with us to buy a short-term insurance plan to cover you through the end of the year.
You can call us at 888-809-1136 or visit your local agent to learn more.
