EBB insures approximately 68,000 State of New Mexico and Local Public Body employees and family members.

Fiscal Year 2019 Premium Rates for Health Benefits
A premium increase of 4% for Health Benefits (medical, dental and vision) will go into effect July 1, 2018 for Fiscal Year 2019. The Health Benefits fund is a group risk pool administered by the Risk Management Division who is committed to keeping any annual premium increases below 5% and to give our members as many tools as possible to help improve health and reduce expenses to the fund. Through innovative programs, New Mexico Health Benefits fund has been able to keep premium increases far below the trend (per an annual nationwide survey of benefits plans published by Segal, the trend increase for programs in Western States is around 9.8%).
Information regarding all available benefits can be found on this website. The site includes links to programs for members to utilize to improve their health and wellness. Plan members are invited to take advantage of the rich benefit in the Stay Well Health Center located in Santa Fe’s Montoya Building in the South Capitol Campus, where members can have a total medical care experience, both convenient and FREE.
The SoNM Employee Assistance Program managed by the Solutions Group offers online webinars available anytime, and 3 FREE counseling sessions per issue, for any employee and household family member.
Participation in the benefits and programs offered to our employees will serve to reduce overall costs and improve the health of both our members as well as the Benefits Fund itself. All State agencies, Local Public Bodies and individual employees have a vested interest in embracing the tools and benefits offered in order to help avoid future premium increases.

Diabetes remote monitoring combines technology to empower members living with diabetes with evidence based clinical interventions from diabetes specialists.
Clinically targeted members are invited to participate via a letter and an email. If they agree to participate, the member receives a blood glucose meter at no charge, which can track all their readings easily in one place.
The member uses the connected meter and tests as they usually do, but now their readings are shared with diabetes specialists who monitor their results.
Diabetes specialists provide tailored interventions to members when they need it most; counseling on ways to keep their blood sugar readings well controlled, adhering to their medications and generally managing their diabetes.
