Making an Impact


Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico Leadership View


In 2020, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) celebrates its 80th anniversary. Since 1940, BCBSNM has been dedicated to expanding access to high-quality, cost-effective health care and equipping our members with information and tools to help them make the appropriate health care decisions for themselves and their families. Helping our members lead healthier lives also means addressing the health challenges facing our communities. Our statewide outreach and investments – which focus on food insecurity and nutrition, disease prevention and management, housing, access to health care and many other areas – are designed to make measurable improvements on the health and wellness of New Mexicans. We're proud to share the stories of how these efforts are making an impact on people's lives.
