HSD announces $46.2 million in new Medicaid payments to nursing facilities


SANTA FE – Nursing facilities across New Mexico will share $46.2 million in new Medicaid payments to help them mitigate and control the spread of COVID-19 among employees and highly vulnerable residents, the Human Services Department (HSD) announced today. This funding provides immediate financial help to nursing facilities across the state that are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, fighting a surge of positive tests and deaths among both workers and patients — who are especially at risk of complications, hospitalization and death from the virus.
