We have one last chance to stop the harmful Medicaid cuts that Governor Martinez and the Human Services Department are proposing in the Centennial Care 2.0 plan! Co-pays, premiums, eliminating retroactive coverage, and ending other important benefits will not make Medicaid better.
These major cuts will cause thousands of low-income New Mexicans to lose healthcare coverage, shift more costs to healthcare providers, and raise overall costs for our healthcare system and state budget. The cuts will also deny our children and families access to timely and appropriate care, forcing them to wait until medical conditions worsen into emergencies before seeking medical attention.
Please call and urge your networks to contact Governor Martinez at (505) 476-2200. Tell her to stop Medicaid cuts by withdrawing the proposals for premiums, co-pays, eliminating retroactive coverage, and other damaging cuts to benefits and services. Please call her this week before HSD submits its final proposal to the federal government.
