Health Equity in New Mexico Through the Affordable Care Act 09/29/2016

Click for full report Con Alma Health Foundation released a new report assessing how the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) has been implemented in New Mexico. This comprehensive study focuses on ACA measures intended to increase health equity, in which everyone has an equal chance at living a healthy life regardless of a person’s ethnicity, income or zip code.

“This pulls together baseline data about New Mexico’s experience with the ACA in a way that hasn’t been available before,” says Dolores E. Roybal, executive director of Con Alma. “We will provide the report to policy makers stakeholders and health advocates so they can consider ways to maximize the benefits that ACA provides New Mexico.”

We partnered with the University of New Mexico’s College of Population Health, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Center for Health Policy at the University of New Mexico to conduct the study, and the New Mexico Alliance of Health Councils to ensure local communities were represented. This study and report was made possible by a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

As part of the project, UNM developed interactive maps that detail seven categories of children’s insurance coverage by county. “These maps are a useful tool for anyone interested in learning more about the insurance coverage of New Mexico’s children by such categories as race, place, gender and income,” Roybal said.
