NM Health Connections May Become True Health New Mexico

Please read if you are currently enrolled or are considering enrolling in New Mexico Health Connections.

New Mexico Health Connections plans to sell its commercial line of business to Evolent Health™.  This sale, once approved by the New Mexico State Office of the Superintendent of Insurance, will include the self-funded medical plan that APS offers to its employees. The new plan will be called True Health New Mexico; the transition is expected to be completed by Dec. 31, 2017.

The two organizations expect NMHC’s roughly 22,000 group members, provider network contracts, executive leadership team and all NMHC employees will transition to True Health New Mexico by the end of the year.

For APS employees who are currently enrolled with NMHC or who opt to enroll in the NMHC plan during Switch/Open Enrollment, NMHC has assured us that this change will not impact our employees or the medical plan it administers for us.  As a reminder, all three of the APS medical plan options (and also our prescription drug, dental and vision plans) are self-insured plans, which means the money to pay claims comes from APS; both from premium dollars contributed by employees through payroll deductions and money contributed by APS which is held in our insurance reserves.

If you have questions about the sale of New Mexico Health Connections commercial line of business, representatives from NMHC will be in attendance at Switch/Open Enrollment.  Switch/Open Enrollment will be held Oct. 6 and Oct. 9-13 in the Alice & Bruce King Educational Complex (formerly City Centre).  Representatives from New Mexico Health Connections, Presbyterian Health Plan and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico will be in attendance from 1-5 p.m. each day and from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 11.  Switch/Open Enrollment hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
