What is the state of health care in New Mexico? What has changed? What will be impacted? What are the ACA’s health equity provisions? How can we leverage solutions through the ACA? Hear experts and practitioners share their expertise and updates as well as learn about changes to ACA provisions.

We recently received a two-year grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to help strengthen the health-care safety net in New Mexico and support a network of organizations to advocate for health policies and health-care reform. This is the next step to Con Alma’s ongoing work in advocating for Health Care Reform in New Mexico with a unique focus on health-equity measures in the federal law. Con Alma is pleased to partner with the New Mexico Health Equity Partnership at the Santa Fe Community Foundation on this project.

Health Equity in New Mexico Through the ACA

Achieving Equity in Health  for Children and Families  in New Mexico Through the Affordable Care Act
Con Alma Health Foundation released a 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.

Interactive Maps

New Mexico Children and 
Health Insurance Coverage

The Affordable Care Act includes provisions that focus on improving quality of care for racial and ethnic minorities. In New Mexico about 70 percent of children are of color, and almost a third of children live in poverty. Interactive maps are available 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.
