New Mexico

New Mexico is in the process of rolling most of its waiver programs into a comprehensive 1115 demonstration waiver called Centennial Care. While most of its waivers have already been transitioned, the Medically Fragile waiver will not begin transitioning into Centennial care until 2019. New Mexico will retain two 1915(c) HCBS waivers for people with developmental disabilities. The DD waiver does not count parent income; we are unsure whether the Mi Via waiver counts parent income or not. See the Centennial Care page for information on Centennial Care, and the Division of Developmental Disabilities for information on continuing 1915(c) waivers.

This new demonstration creates a comprehensive service delivery system for the New Mexico Medicaid program that is as unique as the State and designed to provide beneficiaries the right care, delivered at the right time, in the right setting. The state seeks to develop and implement a service delivery system that not only integrates care now but ensures that the State can afford to continue the program in future years. The demonstration will enroll most New Mexico Medicaid beneficiaries and New Mexico Medicaid expansion Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) beneficiaries in managed care for a full range of services, including physical health, behavioral health and long term services and supports (home and community based services and institutional care). The demonstration consolidates [most] existing delivery system waivers into a single comprehensive managed care product.
