LAS CRUCES—On Friday, September 28, New Mexico’s Legislative Health and Human Services Committee will hear updates from the research group Manatt on the study exploring a Medicaid buy-in plan for New Mexico. During the 2018 Legislative Session, Medicaid Buy-in memorials (House Memorial 9 and Senate Memorial 3) passed with bipartisan support in favor of studying the fiscal considerations and design of such a plan for New Mexico.
Resolutions supporting the study of a Medicaid buy-in plan have passed with unanimous support in cities and counties across the state.
A Medicaid buy-in plan would allow New Mexicans who are not otherwise eligible for the program to use their own dollars to buy into a quality, affordable coverage option built out of the trusted, popular model of Medicaid. Manatt will be presenting preliminary design options for the Legislative Health and Human Services Committee to consider as the study progresses.
