I will fight to make sure that every community in our state has access to affordable, high-quality health care. No one in our state should have to choose between paying rent or paying for health insurance for their child -- and no one in our state should be forced into bankruptcy for life-saving medical care. We can't afford a system that provides world-class care to some while leaving others in the dust. Here's how we fix it:
Ensure that Medicaid works for all New Mexicans who qualify, and that our medical system works for every community in the state;
Provide the kinds of incentives that encourage doctors, dentists and other health care professionals to come and practice in our most vulnerable communities--and stay;
Invest in our mental and behavioral health system to address the issues that lead to so much crime and tragedy;
Create effective drug rehabilitation and diversion programs to put a stop to overdose deaths and disease transmission, and to prevent crime before it happens; and,
Protect a woman's access to reproductive healthcare.
