Parents Reaching Out serves communities as the New Mexico Family to Family Health Information Center through a recently awarded grant from the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Previous grants from The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) helped us build a strong foundation for improving health care access in our state. We offer tools and resources to families that build their capacity to understand the health care system and make informed choices to access quality health care services that best meet their needs.
It is our goal to help families understand their rights and become informed about:
- Health Care insurance
- Managed care providers
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Home Community Based Waiver options
- Developmental Disabilities Waiver
- Medically Fragile Waiver
- Disabled & Elderly Waiver
- Mi Via
We also provide training and consultation for health care professionals to promote family involvement and informed decision making in health care issues. The Family to Family Health Information Center brings the family perspective to policy discussions through our work with local, state and national advisory boards of agencies and services providers.
