st: Significance of adjusted Heckman estimates

Dear Statalisters,

I am estimating a two-step Heckman selection model (using Stata 10). The adjusted coefficients are calculated according to 

heckman  dep  indep, twostep select(select=indep exlcusionrestriction) mills(mills)

predict select_xb, psel

gen delta = mills*(mills + select_xb)

 gen b_indep1 = [dep]_b[indep1] - ([blfp]_b[indep1]*e(rho)*e(sigma)*delta)

 ci b_indep1

However, I don't know if this adjusted coefficient is statistically significant . indep1 appears both in the regression and in the seleciton equation, being significant in the regression and insignificant in the selection equation. 

How can I tell if the adjusted coefficient on indep1 is statistically significant?

Any help is greatly appreciated!
