By Associated Press

SANTA FE (AP) — A nonprofit group has begun running a radio ad critical of how Gov. Susana Martinez’s administration is handling a shake-up of the mental health providers.
The ad by New Mexicans Fighting for Behavioral Health follows pro-Martinez advertising by another group, New Mexico Competes.
The state has halted Medicaid payments to numerous providers of mental health and substance abuse services after an audit flagged possible overbillings.
The state contends that federal regulations required it to halt the payments and turn over the allegations to the state attorney general’s office to investigate.
The ad by New Mexicans Fighting For Behavioral Health says vulnerable New Mexicans are being put in jeopardy.
New Mexico Competes’ advertising says the administration is cracking down on fraud.
