ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Nearly 192,000 New Mexicans will be eligible for subsidies to help pay for health insurance next year, according to a report an advocacy group released Wednesday.
The report from Families USA, a Washington-based consumer health organization, said the federal tax credits that take effect Jan. 1 will make health insurance affordable for many working families and young people.
“The tax credit subsidies are a game-changer,” Ron Pollack, executive director of Families USA, said in a conference call. “They will make health coverage affordable to huge numbers of families that would otherwise be priced out of the health coverage and care they need.”
Barbara Webber, executive director of Health Action New Mexico, said New Mexico is one of the states with the most to gain from the new health care laws because of its high numbers of uninsured and underinsured residents.
“Many of our families have gone for generations without health care coverage,” she said.
