As part of an effort to combat gun violence, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) is requiring health insurers operating in the state cover out-of-network behavioral health care at in-network rates, according to a Sept. 19 report in the Albuquerque Journal. The mandate applies to all fully insured individual and employer group plans (including ACA exchange plans). The three largest insurers in the state are Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (626,241 members), Presbyterian Health Plan (594,457 members) and UnitedHealthcare (234,800).
