The countdown has begun. If you don’t know about the state’s insurance network kicking off in 13 days, get ready to learn about it. The New Mexico Health Insurance Exchange is launching a massive, statewide campaign aimed at encouraging uninsured residents to sign up for coverage starting Oct. 1.

Media ads in English, Spanish and Navajo will begin this week in a comprehensive effort to reach the 200,000 New Mexicans who don’t have insurance. The marketing agency BVK of Milwaukee unveiled the key strategies of its “Be Well” campaign Tuesday at an Albuquerque news conference.

    I believe the majority of the English Abhor their medical system and dental.

    But the following article would seem to be somewhat opposite.
    However, tax payers end up funding the excessive costs over time and that means the middle man in the US, which is the Government.
    Do we want to pay the healthcare providers or the AHS (Obamacare) and its numerous levels of "oversight"?

    [sad]I have insurance as a state employee; but I still cannot afford the $145.00 co-pay for my prescription that just ran out. In June it was $55.00 for 3 months. So, I have to go without. Just because you PAY for insurance does not mean you can afford the co-pays. It's a shame! You work hard, pay for your insurance, but only the poor and rich can afford dental work, prescriptions, and emergency care. Hummmm, what's wrong with this picture. I think Socialization of medicine is long over due!!! The English have it right.
