The State Coverage Insurance Program is a program offered by private insurers in partnership with the state of New Mexico that makes low-cost health insurance available to small employers, self-employed and individuals (See Chapter 4).

When can I get State Coverage Insurance (SCI)?

  • If you are between 19 and 64 years old, uninsured (and have not voluntarily dropped insurance within the last 6 months), and earn less than 200% FPL, you may be able to buy health insurance through SCI. In addition, you will be required to provide a letter of support from the individual who is going to pay the premium.

WHAT WILL SCI COVER?

  • SCI provides basic coverage to eligible individuals. Coverage includes physician services, hospital, prescription drugs, X-rays, and mental health services. All individuals are subject to a $100,000 annual cap. Services may vary depending on the plan. No dental or vision services.
  • Currently, three health plans participate in SCI, Lovelace, Molina, and Presbyterian.

WHAT ABOUT PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS?

  • There are no pre-existing condition exclusion periods when you buy health insurance through SCI.

WHAT CAN I BE CHARGED FOR SCI COVERAGE?

  • As an individual, you will have to pay the $75 employer contribution in addition to the monthly premium (up to $35 per month). You may also be responsible for co-payments.
