New State Law Adds Patient Protections for Healthcare Billing

Overwhelming medical debt can push consumers and families into poverty and cause wage garnishment, bankruptcy or ruined credit. Effective July 1, 2021, the New Mexico Patients Debt Collection Practices Act created several new requirements for healthcare providers, debt buyers, and collection agencies that collect medical debt.  View more information in English and in Spanish.

Dependent Audit

In the Fall, the City of Albuquerque, Insurance & Benefits will be conducting a dependent eligibility audit. Our goal is to identify and remove dependents who do not meet the City’s eligibility rules for continuing coverage. Why are we doing this? National statistics show that each ineligible dependent costs all of us an average of $4,500 per year. And that can mean higher premiums and fewer benefits for all eligible employees and their families. Eliminating these wasted dollars will help control our healthcare costs-and save you money as well.

How does this affect you?  You may be contacted to provide documentation regarding any dependents currently enrolled in your benefits.  Dependents you have added require documentation, including Marriage Certificates, birth certificates and Domestic Partnership Affidavits.  The documents will have to be provided to the company completing the audit.  Any dependents not eligible, pursuant to the Eligibility Rules, will be removed from your benefits. View more information on Eligibility.
