Centennial Care for Native Americans

Presbyterian has been part of New Mexico’s history for over 100 years. We are the only health plan that has been serving Medicaid members since New Mexico began offering Medicaid plans over 20 years ago. We are proud to continue to be your partner in health.

Presbyterian is committed to improving the health of Native American members, patients and communities we serve.

  • People First: Members, Patients, Employees and Clinician Partners
  • Wholeness: Body, Mind, Spirit and Community
  • High Performance: Excellence, Innovation, Teamwork and Trust

Choose Presbyterian as your partner in health

Presbyterian Centennial Care is designed to keep you in good health. Along with the standard Centennial Care benefits, we give you value added services and the tools to help you reach your best health. Presbyterian Health Plan also has a dedicated Native American team to help you with your healthcare needs.

We are a Managed Care Organization (MCO) Medicaid plan that helps manage your healthcare needs. We help you access healthcare services when you are healthy and when you are not. We also help when you have special needs or need complex healthcare services. Also, Native American Centennial Care members do not pay copays when receiving medical services.

You can choose Presbyterian Centennial Care when you complete the Medicaid application.
