What's Included in a Bronze Plan?

All Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) Bronze plans offer the same set of essential health benefits, quality and amount of care. The differences are how much your premium costs each month, what portion of the bill you pay for things like hospital visits or prescription medications, and how much your total out-of-pocket costs are.

Bronze plans generally have the lowest monthly premium and often the highest out-of-pocket costs. In most cases, Bronze plans cover 60% of costs, while you cover 40%.

  • Am I able to change my health plan?

    There are two “seasons” for Individual and Family health insurance, each with different guidelines for enrolling in a new health plan.

    • Open Enrollment Period: During Open Enrollment, you’re free to pick a new Individual and Family plan. You don’t have to go through any life changes like you do during Special Enrollment. Open Enrollment starts November 1st and typically lasts just over 2 months, ending January 16th.

    • Special Enrollment Period: During Special Enrollment, you can choose a new health plan if you’ve gone through certain life changes that affect your coverage. Some of the more common events are losing or changing jobs, getting married, having or adopting a child or moving. Learn more about the Special Enrollment period.

  • How can I find my health plan’s benefits?

    Most of your plan’s benefits can be found in your Summary of Benefits. There, you’ll find a brief breakdown of your plan’s costs, covered services, benefits, and more. 

    As a BCBSNM member, you’ll have more than just the benefits covered in your plan – you’ll get savings on health and wellness costs with Blue365®, guidance for your health journey through the Well OnTarget® portal and more.
