Quality, Affordable Health Care for All New Mexicans
The Health Security for New Mexicans Campaign is a broad grassroots coalition of organizations and individuals around New Mexico that believe it’s time for our state to set up its own health plan, with freedom of choice of health care provider and a comprehensive benefit package, to ensure health care coverage for all New Mexicans.
Continuing to support a complex private health insurance system that has failed to address our health care crisis is not a wise investment of our limited resources. That’s why we advocate for the New Mexico Health Security Plan—an approach that shifts private insurance to a supplementary role, just as Medicare did for the over-65 population many years ago.
Costing Out the Plan
Before the Health Security Plan is set up, we want to make sure it's financially feasible. That's why the 2019 New Mexico Legislature set aside funding to complete a fiscal analysis of the Health Security Plan. Once the results are in (see the timeline), legislation to enact Health Security will be re-introduced in the state legislature.
