Medicare in New Mexico

Medicare is a federal health insurance program that is available to New Mexico residents age 65 or older or residents of any age with certain disabilities and illnesses. The population of persons age 65 and over in New Mexico is projected to double over the upcoming decade. According to census data, New Mexico will rank fourth in the nation in percentage of seniors as part of the entire state's population. This population growth will yield a larger pool of Medicare-eligible individuals, and this number will continue to increase from the 316,973 Medicare enrollees accounted for in 2011.
