Easy Healthcare Enrollment Bill Co-Sponsored By Rep. Christine Chandler Passes House With Unanimous Support


 HB 95, which would make it easier for New Mexicans to enroll in health insurance, passed the House floor with a unanimous vote today. 

The bill would give New Mexico taxpayers the option to consent to the transfer of their information to the Human Services Department or to the New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange, to help them enroll in health insurance and other programs for which they might qualify. 

“All New Mexicans deserve access to quality health care for themselves and their families,” said Representative Thomson. “More than 23,000 uninsured New Mexicans will now gain easy access to the affordable health care that they deserve.”

This legislation was sponsored by Representatives Elizabeth “Liz” Thomson (D-Albuquerque),  and Christine Chandler (D- Los Alamos), Senators Elizabeth “Liz” Stefanics (D-Cerrillos) and Brenda McKenna (D-Corrales).
