Health Indicator Report of Medicaid Enrollment

Medicaid provides health coverage for those New Mexicans living below a certain percentage of the federal poverty level, and provides coverage for almost half of New Mexico's children. People with health coverage are more likely to receive preventive medical care and are consequently less likely to suffer from preventable illnesses and complications of those illnesses.

Notes

Enrollment varies from one month to the next. The average monthly enrollment was used to compute these percentages.   Fiscal year Medicaid enrollment percentages were calculated using the July 1st population estimates for the same fiscal year.
