Governor Lujan Grisham Acts To Lower Health Care Costs For New Mexicans

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham

From the Office of the Governor:

ALBUQUERQUE — Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham acted to decrease prescription drug and health care costs for New Mexicans Thursday, June 9,  by creating a Prescription Drug Task Force.

Members of the task force will work to reduce the costs of prescriptions for New Mexicans, building on Gov. Lujan Grisham’s record of delivering affordable health care to every corner of the state.

In just three and a half years, Gov. Lujan Grisham took decisive action to increase access to  high-quality health care to every New Mexican. Under Gov. Lujan Grisham’s leadership, New Mexico became the  third state to cap monthly insulin copayments – lowering health care costs for thousands of New Mexicans living with diabetes on state-regulated insurance plans. Gov. Lujan Grisham established the Health Care Affordability Fund, enabling tens of thousands of New Mexicans to get health care coverage, and reducing the cost of care for every New Mexican. The Lujan Grisham administration also increased Medicaid rates, strengthening partnerships with hospitals and healthcare providers and helping doctors, hospitals, and dentists better serve patients.

Gov. Lujan Grisham believes behavioral health care is just as important as physical health. In order to make behavioral health services more affordable and accessible, Gov. Lujan Grisham eliminated copays for behavioral health services for New Mexicans for nearly 350,000 New Mexicans and is rebuilding the state’s behavioral health system after it was gutted by the previous Republican administration.

Gov. Lujan Grisham is working to deliver affordable prescription drugs and health care for every New Mexican, so that no family is forced to choose between putting food on the table and seeing a doctor.
