Datapoint: New Mexico Cancels Medicaid RFP
New Mexico last week canceled its managed Medicaid procurement process, citing recent leadership changes in its Human Services Department. The state was preparing to relaunch its current Centennial Care program as Turquoise Care, which would integrate physical health, behavioral health and long-term care services, while emphasizing social determinants of health, in 2024. Centennial Care is currently served by Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico, Presbyterian Health Plan, and Centene Corp.’s Western Sky Community Care, with Presbyterian leading the pack at 426,769 beneficiaries. Of New Mexico’s 885,048 full-risk Medicaid beneficiaries, 92.0% are enrolled in a managed care plan.
