Do you or a family member currently have health coverage through Medicaid or receive SNAP benefits? If so, you may soon need to take steps to find out if your coverage will continue unchanged. Starting in April, New Mexico is resuming Medicaid and SNAP eligibility reviews, which means some people with Medicaid or SNAP could be disenrolled from those programs. If you are no longer eligible for Medicaid, you may still have low or no-cost health coverage options through New Mexico’s healthcare insurance Marketplace, beWellNM.com.

What if you don’t qualify for Medicaid or SNAP anymore?
If you are no longer eligible for Medicaid, you can request a review of your application, but you must do this in a timely manner. Be sure to open all your correspondence and if you need help with any paperwork, please don’t hesitate to reach out to ILRC staff for help.
