New Mexico Superintendent of Insurance issues guidance prohibiting surprise billing for care received out-of-network as a result of COVID-19


SANTA FE – The New Mexico Office of Superintendent of Insurance (OSI) on Monday announced new requirements for all major health insurance carriers that are subject to New Mexico jurisdiction to cover expenses for out-of-network care received as a result of COVID-19. In recognition of capacity restraints on providers, the new guidance also orders insurance carriers to cover out-of-network bills where a consumer can’t receive in-network care for other conditions due to the COVID-19 crisis.
