NM Health Insurance Exchange To Meet In Roswell

Nov 14, 2013

The governing board of New Mexico's state-run health insurance marketplace meets in Roswell this week as it faces questions of what can be done to help New Mexicans struggling with a problem-plagued federal exchange website.

Board member Jason Sandel said he expects Friday's meeting to include a discussion of what can be done to deal with the federal exchange that New Mexico is relying on to enroll individuals. The state's exchange handles the enrollment of small businesses.

Sandel said he wants to know whether individuals can use a state-run call center to enroll.

The board is scheduled to meet at the Eastern New Mexico University campus in Roswell starting at 10 a.m.

On Thursday, the exchange is holding a "listening session" in the community to hear from the public.
