The New Mexico Human Services Department will process your Centennial Care application. You will be asked to choose a health plan when you apply. Presbyterian Health Plan is proud to be part of New Mexico’s Centennial Care program.

You may change the health plan that provides your Centennial Care benefits during your first 90 days of enrollment. For example, if you chose Presbyterian as your health plan but weren’t assigned to us, you have a chance to make this change within 90 days of your enrollment.

For questions about the status of your application, please contact the New Mexico Medicaid Call Center at 1-888-997-2583.

Once your application has been approved, Presbyterian Health Plan will receive your information. You can then expect to receive an ID card and welcome packet in the mail. Then, a representative will contact you to help you fill out your health risk assessment to help us meet your healthcare needs.

Such services are funded in part with the State of New Mexico.​​​​​​
