About 190,000 people in New Mexico don’t have health coverage. 90% of the uninsured are below 400% of the poverty level. That means they don’t have any financial security of they are struck with illness or injury. #nmleg
That’s why we’re looking at four Medicaid buy-in options to expand coverage to more people and improve affordability.… #nmleg
These options could be phased-in over time. Advocates think the best place to start is an option for individuals who are uninsured and are locked out of public coverage, ACA Marketplace coverage, and affordable employer coverage.…
This is the option that advocates think we should pursue in the coming legislative session.
This would help people who are locked out of coverage today and provide benefits that are comparable to the ACA for this population. Once we get more people covered, the buy-in option could be expanded to more people through one of the other options.
About 80,000 people would be eligible for the Targeted Medicaid Buy-In option. Many of these individuals are uninsured and would finally have an affordable option for their family. This would be a huge step forward for New Mexico. #nmleg
✅ Better health for NM’s families
✅ Financial stability for NM’s families
✅ Doctors and clinics would be paid for their services
✅ A stronger health care workforce
✅ A program that could be expanded to more New Mexicans to improve affordability and access to care
