Advancing quality healthcare for New Mexico’s children and families
Everybody in New Mexico should have access to quality, affordable healthcare. Following a rigorous statewide advocacy campaign by the Center and our partners, New Mexico led the way in Medicaid Expansion, extending coverage to over 250,000 people. However, many New Mexicans still cannot get necessary medical care, and many more are paying too much for the care they have.
The Center works to protect and expand access to healthcare in New Mexico. We advocate for policy changes, especially to Medicaid, and enforce the rights of our children and families. We work with our communities to advance health equity and ensure that all New Mexicans can access healthcare regardless of their race, gender, or immigration status.
The Center works to ensure our communities know about healthcare options and how to apply.
With over 1 in 3 New Mexicans relying on Medicaid for their healthcare, we advocate for fully funding the program, making enrollment easier, and ensuring access to services.
New Mexico’s children and youth face overwhelming obstacles to growing up healthy.
The Center promotes health equity by addressing access and affordability issues at New Mexico’s hospitals.
