Con Alma Health Foundation has held four regional convenings on Heath Care Reform in New Mexico, in Albuquerque, Las Cruces, Clovis and in Gallup. The purpose of these convenings is to bring together nonprofits, government agencies and businesses, for an update on new activities and changes related to health care reform over the past year since the BluePrint for Health New Mexico: Health Care Reform Implementation Work Plan report was released in November 2011. The convenings also provide an opportunity for networking, information sharing, and discussion on needs and gaps in health care reform implementation in New Mexico.

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.
