2023 Open Enrollment Report

This report provides a summary of information for week one of the beWellnm health insurance individual Marketplace Open Enrollment Period for plan year 2023 (OEP 2023). The report contains data from the beWellnm eligibility and enrollment platform for OEP 2023, and includes an overview of the following:

  • plan selections
  • new enrollees
  • enrollees renewing coverage
  • Customer Engagement Center call volumes
  • website traffic

Enrollment

This section contains enrollment data through January 15, 2022.

1. Total Plan Selections (net): Count of unique individuals who have selected a Plan Year (PY) 2023 Marketplace medical plan. Count includes all new and re-enrolling consumers (defined in Indicators 2 and 3), regardless of whether the consumer has paid the first month premium. Count does not include plans that were canceled or terminated.: 40,689

Officially, this represents roughly a 6% drop in enrollment year over year, but I've been informed there were some technical issues experienced during the transition which may have had an impact on accurately determining the prior year's enrollment.

It's important to remember that while the Open Enrollment Period has ended in New Mexico (and most other states), there's still a lot of folks who can still enroll:

  • In New Mexico, anyone earning less than 200% of the Federal Poverty Level ($27,180/yr if single; $55,500 for a family of four) can enroll year-round
  • Anyone eligible for Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) can enroll year-round
  • Alaska Natives and members of Native American tribes can enroll year-round
  • Anyone who has a Qualifying Life Experience (QLE) such as losing existing coverage, moving, getting married/divorced, giving birth, etc. qualifies for a 60-day Special Enrollment Period

2. New Consumers (net): Count of unique individuals who have selected a Plan Year (PY) 2023 Marketplace medical plan, where the consumer did not have (PY) 2022 Marketplace medical coverage on or after 11/01/22. Count does not include plans that were canceled or terminated.: 9,551

3. Total Re-enrollees: Count of unique individuals who have selected a (PY) 2023 Marketplace medical plan, where the consumer had non-canceled (PY) 2022 Marketplace medical coverage on or after 11/01/22.
