Let's Talk New Mexico 10/19 8a: Recently, the Trump Administration has relaxed rules on health insurance plans and contraception coverage, and cancelled subsidies that help get health coverage to low income people. What do these developments mean for the future of health care in New Mexico? 

This week on Let’s Talk New Mexico, we’re looking at what these developments mean for access to health coverage, family planning services, and insurance markets here.

Do you get your insurance from the state exchange? Do you rely on your employer’s health plan for contraceptive coverage? Are you a business owner who could benefit from the new changes?

Email letstalk@kunm.org or call in live during the show, Thursday morning at 8 here on 89.9 KUNM.
