ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A major insurer is telling thousands of New Mexico residents that they’ll have to select new plans for individual health care coverage.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico last week sent a letter to customers now covered by individual insurance plans that don’t meet the federal health care law’s standards.

The Albuquerque Journal (https://bit.ly/1qRsuFW ) reports that the move will coverage for approximately 30,000 people Jan. 1. That includes 13,000 people whose plans had been grandfathered because they were in place before the law was enacted in 2010.

New Mexico Insurance Superintendent John Franchini in May directed that all plans sold in New Mexico after Dec. 31 must comply with the law’s standards.

The New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange offers plans by five different insurance companies, including Blue Cross.
