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?

“Now it’s time to develop an actionable agenda regarding those elements of health care reform that are critical to the health of children. We will bring together people who should have a voice in this important issue. They can help guide our policy makers and other stakeholders in policies and practices that will protect the health and wellbeing of families in New Mexico.” – Dolores E. Roybal

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. More info on the “Children at the Center” initiative here.

Health Equity in NM Through the ACA



We 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.

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.
