The New Mexico Human Services Department last week said it is seeking proposals from health insurers to serve the state’s managed Medicaid program. The current program, Centennial Care 2.0, will be renamed Turquoise Care when the new contracts begin 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 426,491 beneficiaries. Of New Mexico’s 878,632 full-risk Medicaid beneficiaries, 92.2% are enrolled in a managed care plan.
