The New Mexico Medical Insurance Pool (NMMIP)
The New Mexico Medical Insurance Pool (NMMIP) was established by the 1987 New Mexico State Legislature. The Pool was created to provide access to health insurance coverage to residents of New Mexico who are denied health insurance and considered uninsurable.
NMMIP also provides health benefit portability coverage to New Mexicans who have exhausted COBRA benefits and have no other portability options available to them.
NMMIP is administered by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico who handles eligibility, enrollment, member services and claims processing.
You may reach the Administrator, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico at 1.800.432.0750 (Option #4) or the Executive Director at 866.622.4711 for information or applications.

New Mexico Medical Insurance Pool Transition Assistance Fee
The New Mexico Medical Insurance Pool (Pool) Board of Directors have instituted a program that will provide a transition assistance fee of $300 to an agent that assists a Pool member transition from the Pool to other insurance. Agents may reach out to and assist their own clients enrolled in the Pool, or may notify the Pool of their desire to take referrals from members requesting assistance. The Pool staff will refer to brokers only upon request from a Pool member who is seeking assistance. Please note that the Pool staff is unable to provide lists of clients to agents.
To be eligible for the $300 transition fee, the member and agent must complete a “New Mexico Medical Insurance Pool Termination Request” and provide proof of successful enrollment through the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange (NMHIX), Centennial Care, or other comprehensive health insurance.
The agent must also have a current W-9 form on file with the Pool. When the documentation is verified as complete, the transition fee will be processed. Additional information may beobtained by contacting the Pool’s Executive Office at (866) 622-4711.
