Premium Assistance for Kids (PAK)
Presbyterian Health Plan participates in the Premium Assistance for Kids (PAK) program in conjunction with Insure New Mexico!, a division of the New Mexico Human Services Department. This program helps families purchase comprehensive health coverage for their uninsured children. In this state-funded initiative, the state pays a percentage of the monthly premium for a comprehensive health plan for children who qualify. The parent or guardian pays the remaining monthly premium. Eligible children are enrolled in Presbyterian Insurance Company, Inc.'s PresSolo Individual Plan with a $500 deductible.
To qualify for this program, children must be:
- Under age 12
- Under age 18 if child has a sibling under age 12
- Not eligible for Medicaid due to amount of income; and
- Do not have any other healthcare coverage
How to apply
Contact the Insure New Mexico! Solutions Call Center at (888) 997-2583 to complete an application or visit the official PAK website.
Due to state budgetary constraints, the Department will stop enrollment of new clients in its PAK and PAM programs effective September 1, 2010. Applications postmarked after the deadline will not be processed.
