Health Action NM Statewide Meet Ups

"Working for affordable, accessible, accountable health care for all people living in New Mexico"

Dear Friends:
Beginning this week, HSD will begin holding public hearings across the state regarding the Medicaid Redesign Proposal. We encourage you to attend one of these hearings.
Under the health care reform law that Congress passed, Medicaid will be expanded to everyone under 138% of the federal poverty level, beginning in 2014. This means that all low-income people who experience homelessness or who are at high risk of homelessness - regardless of disability status or whether they have children - will able to obtain Medicaid beginning in 2014. But how easy Medicaid will be to access and what services and benefits it will cover will depend on what happens with this Medicaid redesign taking place right now. So its really important to make our voices heard on this. See below for the schedule of hearings and see attached for background information and talking points you can use at the hearings.
I am trying to get a sense of how many of our members will be attending one of these hearings. If plan to attend, please let me know by emailing me at
