Coverage is offered through the State of New Mexico’s benefit program. The State of New Mexico has contracted with ERISA, a third party administrator (ph: 855-618-1800), to manage the medical/prescription and dental programs. Employee premium contributions are based on employee’s annual salary and a percentage of the total premium cost is paid by the University.

This benefit is available to  eligible employees and their dependents. Eligible employees are considered regular status employees and non-regular term appointment employees working 30 hours or more per week. Eligible dependents may include spouse, qualified domestic partner, children to age 26 (the end of the month in which age 26 is attained), and disabled children age 26 or older.
New eligible employees may enroll by completing and submitting the Benefit Enrollment/Waiver Form within their first 31 days of employment . Benefits are effective the first pay period after 30 days of employment. Otherwise, existing employees may enroll annually during the open enrollment process (fall) or due to a change in status/qualifying event.
