Letter from the President

The people of New Mexico are the heart and soul of everything we do at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM). Our purpose is to stand with our members in sickness and in health, and that extends to all citizens of our great state. This is the reason the employees of BCBSNM, including myself, are Proud to Be Blue.

Founded in 1940, BCBSNM has grown to be the largest commercial carrier in our state. We are also proud to serve members of the Medicaid population through our BlueSalud program. Our members have put their trust in us to meet their health care needs. We take this trust very seriously. BCBSNM will always be a leader to improve access to affordable, high-quality health care for all New Mexicans.

I personally am proud to be part of a company that not only focuses on our members, but is motivated to help with the greater needs in our state. We are proud of our long-term relationships and our new connections with community partners who share our mission to lead New Mexicans towards better health and productive lives. Whether that be building a playground in a low-income neighborhood, providing school supplies to at-risk students, or conducting a health fair for the community, BCBSNM invests its time and resources to address the most pressing health and social challenges facing New Mexico.

BCBSNM is a financially sound, ever-growing, locally managed company made up of employees who are dedicated to our mission and purpose. I am inspired each day by our employees who devote themselves not only to their work and our members, but by their efforts to give back to New Mexico’s communities. Just last year we gave 3,200 personal volunteer hours to a wide range of community organizations. Our Care Van traveled the state helping to provide 1,500 immunizations and 4,700 health screenings to underserved New Mexicans.

I invite you to read about how BCBSNM is impacting people through innovative programs and initiatives designed to help people on their paths to better health. Join us in being Proud to Be Blue!
