New Mexico on Aug. 11 announced its intention to award managed Medicaid contracts to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico, Presbyterian Health Plan, UnitedHealthcare and Molina Healthcare. Presbyterian and BCBSNM are incumbents, while United and Molina are new to the program. Notably missing from the list is Centene Corp.’s Western Sky Community Care, which currently serves 91,157 Medicaid lives in the state. The current program, Centennial Care 2.0, will be renamed Turquoise Care when it launches July 1, 2024, and will integrate physical health, behavioral health and long-term care services, while emphasizing social determinants of health. Of New Mexico’s 844,658 full-risk Medicaid beneficiaries, 92.3% are enrolled in a managed care plan.
