Final 2015 Health Insurance Deadline Is Sunday


New Mexico residents have only a few days left before the February 15 deadline to sign up for health insurance and to be covered by March 1, 2015.

The New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange will have help centers open for extended hours across the state to help people sign up. BeWellNM’s call center is also taking questions from insurance shoppers.  People who don’t have insurance coverage before Sunday will face higher tax penalties this year:  $325 per adult, or 2 percent of annual income, whichever is higher.
