ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Donald Trump’s election as president has many across the country and here in New Mexico wondering what it means for their health care.
“That begins with immediately repealing the disaster known as Obamacare,” said President-elect Donald Trump, at a pre-election campaign rally in Sanford, Fl.
Advocacy group, Health Action New Mexico, said statements like that have led to a flood of calls to their organization from people concerned and confused about the future of their medical insurance.
While a lot is up in the air, the group’s executive director said people can rest assured their current plans will stay intact — at least for the immediate future.
“2017 is fine. 2017 no one is going to, contracts are in place, so that coverage for the next calendar year is safe,” said Barbara Webber, executive director, Health Action New Mexico.
If you want coverage to start Jan. 1, the last day to enroll in or change plans is Dec.15.
