Lujan Grisham: Governor Made Right Decision on Medicaid Expansion

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Albuquerque, NM

U.S. Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham (NM-01) released the following statement in response to Governor Susana Martinez declaring that New Mexico would accept the expansion of Medicaid funding from the Federal Government.

"I applaud the Governor for making the right decision on Medicaid expansion. Expanding eligibility under Medicaid is a crucial part of health care reform and most important, a critical way to increase coverage for at least 140,000 additional New Mexicans. This will not only provide more access for care for families, but it is an economic driver and will help expand the healthcare workforce in New Mexico. This expansion will also keep hospitals open, which are the lifeline of the healthcare delivery system.

"I look forward to working with the Governor and her Administration on fully implementing this important program."
