HIX moves ahead in New Mexico

HIX-image-270Despite earlier opposition to healthcare reform implementation, New Mexico’s governor has signed a bill into law that provides the groundwork for the state’s health insurance exchange (HIX).

Republican governor Susanna Martinez stands with a small handful of GOP governors who crossed party lines in order to begin building the HIX.  An estimated 200,000 New Mexicans are projected to be able to purchase coverage via the exchange by 2020.

“As I said during my State of the State address, I didn’t support Obamacare, but it is the law of the land. My job is to implement this law in a way that best serves New Mexicans,” Martinez said in a statement.
