The Care Link New Mexico service focuses on behavioral health and physical health integration. In New Mexico, many people get their benefits through the Medicaid Program. Some of those people may have chronic health conditions or behavioral health needs and have been unable to find providers or access appropriate services. Without the right providers and services, it is hard for people to get well and stay healthy. The goal of Care Link New Mexico is to make sure its members get the care and services needed. This will mean fewer trips to the emergency room, less out of home placements, improved health, and access to primary care services.
This service is only available to individuals deemed eligible based on State criteria, and who are enrolled in New Mexico Medicaid through a Managed Care organization.
