Serving Our Members in 2019

A Message from Our President

Nov. 1, 2018


Like many in health care, we believe ZIP code is as important as genetic code in deciding a person's health. That's why for us to be most effective, we need to be in each ZIP code through all life stages, market changes and natural disasters. Through it all, we're focused on expanding coverage to as many families and individuals, young and old.

As open enrollment season starts for many of you, we're proud to once again provide comprehensive coverage across New Mexico. Whether you get your health plan from your employer, on the individual marketplace or through a broker — we're dedicated to providing more affordable products. That includes access to tools to help you make the best choices for you and your family.

Our work doesn't stop here. Many in our communities still can't pay for health coverage. That's why we're investing in ways to make health care more affordable and easier to access for all New Mexicans.

We're strengthening our partnership with doctors, hospitals and care providers to improve quality of care for our members in New Mexico. We're digging deeper to understand the needs of our members. That's so we can provide peace of mind and empower whole-person health. Since healthier communities make health care more affordable for everyone, we'll keep being a valuable contributor to the communities we share with our neighbors, friends and members of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico.

This is the next chapter of our history of protecting New Mexicans — through it all.

Kurt Shipley
President, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico
