While it’s a good idea to carry your medical ID with you at all times, it’s particularly important to have it with you when you travel. Your medical ID card has important phone numbers and authorization information. If you’re enrolled in a UNM medical plan, and will be travelling outside of New Mexico or abroad during the holidays, all UNM medical carriers participate in nationwide networks so you can go to a provider who accepts your plan.
Emergency care is covered at the in-network level anywhere within the US and internationally. If your health is in serious risk, go the nearest hospital or call 911. If you need non-emergency services, contact the medical carrier at the number(s) listed on your medical ID card to find providers and facilities.
As you get ready for your Holiday Season travels, we recommend you review the detailed information on the UNM Medical webpages.
