Attention Southwest Medical Associates Patients

They will no longer be contracted with Presbyterian Health Plan.

Southwest Medical Associates recently announced that they will no longer be a contracted provider for Presbyterian Health Plan effective Jan. 1, 2018.

If you are on the APS medical plan and your doctor (or one of your enrolled family members’ doctors) is with Southwest Medical Associates, and you do not want to change doctors, you may want to consider switching medical plans during Switch/Open Enrollment. Many of the Southwest Medical Associates doctors are contracted with New Mexico Health Connections (NMHC) and with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBS). 

In 2018, if you are on the Presbyterian Health Plan medical plan option and go to a Southwest Medical Associates provider, those services will be paid at the out-of-network level, resulting in significantly more out-of-pocket costs to you.

Information about locating a provider contracted with your medical plan option is included in the 2018 Employee Benefits Enrollment Guide
