The Secretary of New Mexico’s Human Services Department has released the state's Medicaid modernization plan aimed at trying to reduce the rising costs of the program across the state. The modernization plan is called Centennial Care and it includes using school health clinics to see more patients, trying to get Medicaid recipients to take a bigger role in making healthier choices, rewarding providers for using cost-effective measures aimed at outcomes instead of process and simplifying 11 current Medicaid waivers into one.
