October 15, 2015
A few weeks ago, there was an article in the Albuquerque Journal stating
that BC/BS would no longer offer insurance to people on the New Mexico
Exchange (Obama Care). The Exchange makes health insurance available to
the uninsured populace in New Mexico and in many states in our nation.
This article created some concern among many retirees in the RHCA. It
was interpreted by some, that BC/BS would no longer be available or
offer coverage to retirees and dependents enrolled in the Retiree Health
Care Authority. This is not the case. BC/BS continues to offer health
insurance services to folks in the Retiree Health Care Authority and
will do so into the future.
The only scenario in which the BC/BS would not offer their program is if
the Retiree Health Care Authority terminated the contract with them. If
this were to happen, another carrier would be selected that would offer
coverage that was better or more advantageous to the Retiree Health Care
Authority and their retirees.
