Snapshot of Health Care in New Mexico

New Mexico is a large, rural state with a low population. Out of approximately 2 million residents in the state, about 360,000 people under the age of 65 do not have health insurance. This means that 21% of the non-elderly people living in New Mexico are living without health insurance - over 1 in 5 individuals.

Health reform through the Affordable Care Act offers some solutions to help start to fix this problem in our state. But there’s one big challenge: not enough New Mexicans know what is about to happen.

  • 170,000 people will be newly eligible for Medicaid
  • Another 200,000 people will be able to purchase health insurance with tax subsidies on the new Health Insurance Marketplaces
  • 83% of the people who qualify have no idea it’s coming.
