I'm an Eligibility Specialist in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Our Medicaid offices were not prepared for such a large volume of people to qualify for Medicaid here in New Mexico. A lot of people who didn't qualify (even by just a few hundred dollars) were confused as to what to do next. The Medicaid offices were too slow in denying Medicaid. They need a better way of denying Medicaid and getting those denials out quickly, instead of having consumers wait months to hear a response. Some people were qualified for the adult expansion Medicaid, but then their Medicaid was terminated when...Read more
On October 1st I went to the NM Human Services Department in order to get information regarding Obamacare.
I have to admit, I did not know anything about the new Affordable Care Act. Previously, I had the chance to talk to the Human Services Department about receiving food stamps. I did ask for more information at that time about how to enroll into Medicaid and I was told to call on October 1, 2013 to enroll.
So there I...Read more

We volunteer for the for NMHIX outreach, which is the Marketplace for private insurance as well as Medicaid. Basically it’s what we like to do. We like to help others. We get a good sense of helping out the community.
This is my first time here. We’re glad we’re getting to know the community down here in Belen. It’s a big deal, a lot of people are low income and a lot of them don’t have the jobs they had before. It does benefit them and it does help them out a lot. It’s very beneficial.
I think a plus is that it covers dental and vision. A lot of the community does need...Read more
Kathy with a K, Dixon. I’m trying to get health insurance for my husband and myself. It’s going. My husband had, almost two years ago, blood clots in the lungs. Myself, I don’t think I have any problems so to speak. We don’t make that much money about $700 a month, maybe.
I’m not working and he can’t really work because…he can’t breathe. Because the blood clots in his lungs, it scared his lungs.

So on November I went on to my computer and applied on the yes.nm state website. I gave...Read more
I am so grateful someone came out to my rural community to talk about heath coverage! I own a little gallery here and don’t make a lot of money.
My husband has VA coverage, but I haven’t had anything for years.
I came to enroll because I just found out there is a degenerative issue with my back. I was very stressed out about loosing everything because of medical bills in the coming years. I was also worried about being able to afford health coverage.
But I came today to get help. They asked me some questions and told me I was probably eligible for Medicaid. I couldn’t...Read more
I had insurance for many years when I lived in California and worked for the University System.
I moved to NM several years ago. I am an artist, keep many animals, and have been uninsured for years.
I don’t like Western Medicine, and don’t think I’ll use my insurance much, but I’m glad I can get Medicaid, especially because I have some dental things going on. I guess at my age you just never know what can happen.
