Important True Health Updates

  • True Health New Mexico has notified APS that they are exiting the New Mexico health insurance market after Dec. 31, 2022.  Due to this change, APS will no longer accept new enrollments into the True Health plan effective May 1, 2022.  Employees and dependents who are already enrolled on the True Health plan will continue on that plan through Dec. 31, 2022 (or through the date they are no longer eligible for APS coverage, if that date precedes Dec. 31, 2022). 
  • The APS group number with True Health New Mexico changed effective Jan. 1, 2022. The new group number is GTAPS01. Our previous group number was NMHCAPS. True Health New Mexico also assigned new member ID numbers to all members. The new member ID number is shown on your 2022 ID card, which True Health mailed directly to employees’ home in December 2021.

Transparency in Coverage Rule: Machine-Readable Files

The links below lead to machine-readable files that are made available in response to the federal Transparency in Coverage Rule. These files include negotiated service rates and out-of-network allowed amounts between health plans and healthcare providers. The machine-readable files are formatted to allow researchers, regulators, and application developers to more easily access and analyze data. Some of the files are compressed using .gzip format, which may require a tool for opening.

Important Notices:

  • As required by the Transparency in Coverage Rule, these links will be live on July 1, 2022.
  • On July 1, 2022, Presbyterian Health Plan (PHP) notified
    Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) that they are experiencing
    technical issues with their system administrator. The PHP
    machine readable files will not be available on July 1, 2022. Once
    PHP resolves this issue and APS receives the link to the files,
    that link will be posted to this website.
