What is SWITCH Enrollment?

Switch Enrollment happens each year between early October to mid-November allowing current NMRHCA members to switch health plans. In late September, members receive a Switch Packet in the mail that includes information about their existing plan and the paperwork to make any desired changes. The paperwork for changes must be submitted to the NMRHCA before the published deadline and the changes will take effect on Jan 1st of the new year. Each year, members can change their plan, if they choose to. If the member does not want to make any changes, they do not have to take any action and their current plan will automatically renew the following year.

What is OPEN Enrollment?

Open Enrollment is the period where members who are eligible to receive NMRHCA benefits can enroll in a health plan when they have not done so previously at the time of a qualifying event. Examples of qualifying events include eligible retirement or loss of coverage somewhere else. If they elected to not enroll in benefits at the time of a qualifying event, they can only enroll during Open Enrollment. Open Enrollment is only in January of every odd year (2023, 2025, 2027, so forth). The process of Open Enrollment occurs during the same period (early October to mid-November) as Switch Enrollment, but only in odd years. The deadline for Open Enrollment submissions is the same date as the Switch Enrollment deadline.
