Stay healthy and covered

Dear Friend,

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed so many challenges and uncertainties upon New Mexico families, and has reinforced how critical it is to be able to access affordable, lifesaving health care.

I want you to know that there are options available for you to stay covered-or get covered-if you are uninsured. You can use the online NM Coverage Connector to see if you are eligible for free or low-cost insurance options. You only have 60 days to sign up for new health coverage in New Mexico's Health Insurance Exchange after you lose your job-based health insurance. If you have questions about that process, I encourage you to call 1-833-862-3935 or visit beWellnm.com.

As we continue to confront this pandemic, I am doing everything I can to ensure that health providers and first responders in every community in New Mexico have the resources and support they need for a strong public health response. I am also standing up against the Trump administration's reckless attempts to dismantle key protections for millions of American families-including those with pre-existing conditions-under the Affordable Care Act.

In the midst of a pandemic, the President needs to stop waging partisan battles over health care and instead focus on reopening and extending ACA enrollment so that all people who need to purchase a new health care plan can do so.

If there is any way that I can assist you or your family during this time, please contact my office. I will continue doing everything in my power to ensure that every family in New Mexico has access to quality and affordable health care.

Be well and stay healthy.

Sincerely,

MARTIN HEINRICH

United States Senator
