Medicaid is a health and long-term care coverage program that is funded by states and the federal government. Each state establishes and administers its own Medicaid program and determines the type, amount, duration, and scope of services covered within broad federal guidelines.
States must cover certain mandatory benefits and may choose to provide other optional benefits.
Centennial Care 2.0
Centennial Care is the new name of New Mexico’s Medicaid program. Its design creates a single delivery system through three managed care plans (MCOs). The three MCOs are:
- Blue Cross Blue Shield New Mexico
- Presbyterian Health Plan, Inc
- Western Sky Community Care
The Centennial Care MCOs will be charged with providing care to the approximately 800,000 New Mexicans who receive services through the Medicaid program, including those who are newly eligible under Medicaid expansion.
Existing Medicaid recipients will be able to begin selecting their new MCO starting in October of 2018. Centennial Care 2.0 will begin in New Mexico January 1, 2019. The newly eligible population under Medicaid expansion will be enrolled under Centennial Care 2.0.
