New Mexico UHC Medicaid Update

New Mexico Medicaid Update

The State of New Mexico’s district court ruling granted approval of UHC’s participation in all readiness activities for the Centennial Care 2.0 contract starting immediately. UnitedHealthcare’s focus remains on providing uninterrupted access to health care for the nearly 110,000 New Mexicans who have entrusted UHC with their health care needs, and are optimistic that UnitedHealthcare Community Plan will be a Medicaid Health Plan choice during open enrollment in Centennial Care 2.0 this fall.
