Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) has been insuring New Mexicans since 1940. We are committed to the well-being of the communities we serve. This includes Native Americans who live on or off tribal lands.
BCBSNM is one of the managed care organizations that offers Medicaid health plans. Our plan is called Blue Cross Community Centennial. It is designed to help meet the health care needs of all New Mexicans. If you qualify for the New Mexico Medicaid program, you can choose to enroll in this plan.

Native American Advisory Board
The Native American Advisory Board (NAAB) is a team that can advise BCBSNM on issues related to Native Americans. NAAB plays a key role in helping BCBSNM improve the Blue Cross Community Centennial health plan. We want to know your experience with the health plan and the health care you receive. This board can include health plan members and their family. It may also include appointed tribal representatives and providers. Check the schedule for upcoming NAAB meetings.
