SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — For a state that's long struggled with one of the nation's highest uninsured rates, New Mexico has a lot at stake with a new health insurance marketplace that starts enrolling customers on Tuesday.

Individuals and small businesses — those with 50 or fewer workers — can begin to shop for insurance through a health insurance exchange that's intended as a one-stop shopping center for health coverage offered by private insurers. Coverage would begin in January.

Enrollment can be done online by going to the state exchange's website (http://www.bewellnm.com/ ), by telephone or in person at about 160 locations across the state, mainly medical clinics and hospitals.

Nearly a fourth of New Mexico's population lacks health insurance. Only five states had a higher rate last year, according to the Census Bureau.

Although the uninsured are the primary target of the exchange, it's available to others as well.
