Please support and give public comment on the Medicaid Buy-in Act (also known as Senate Bill 405 sponsored by Sen. Gerald Ortiz y Pino) in the Senate Public Affairs this THURSDAY (2/14) at 1:30pm (or half hour after the floor session) in Room 321.
The Medicaid Buy-in Act
- Improves access to healthcare by expanding coverage for people who are uninsured and reduces the costs of health insurance.
- Reduces uncompensated care costs for healthcare providers and hospitals by covering more patients.
- Is a state-based coverage solution that leverages the existing popular and trusted Medicaid infrastructure, which already covers over 830,000 New Mexicans.
Between now and the committee hearing on Thursday, we ask that you contact Senate Public Affairs members and ask them to VOTE YES for the Medicaid Buy-in Act. Please see the linked factsheets (English and Spanish) as well as this legislative toolkit for more details.
