Medicaid Progress in New Mexico

At last some good news from the session:

NEW MEXICO MOVES ON MEDICAID. The sense of the Senate “memorial” in
New Mexico which we highlighted in “LTC Bullet: State Moves Toward Private
LTC Financing Alternatives,” Tuesday, February 7, 2006 passed on a vote of
42 to nothing. The memorial urges consideration of LTC insurance and home
equity conversion to relieve Medicaid’s fiscal woes and proposes a study
and conference toward that end.
