New contract expands access to care for patients

April 1, 2024Press ReleaseFeatured

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Presbyterian Health Plan (PHP) and New Mexico Oncology Hematology Consultants Ltd. (NMOHC) are pleased to announce a new contract effective April 1, 2024, that expands access to care for oncology patients and those seeking specialty services in New Mexico.

This agreement eliminates the need for NMOHC patients with PHP insurance to travel to other locations for covered services. Patients can now receive necessary treatments, such as infusions, directly during their regular doctor's visit at NMOHC facilities.

“This improved access allows patients to receive essential care more conveniently," explains Dr. Barbara McAneny, CEO of New Mexico Oncology Hematology Consultants Ltd. "Our comprehensive practice offers a wide range of services, including oncology, pulmonology, urology, ENT, rheumatology, and general surgery, all under one roof."

“We have worked closely with NMOHC on a contract solution that we think benefits the people we jointly serve,” said Brandon Fryar, president of Presbyterian Health Plan. “This approach adds convenience and flexibility for our patients and members.”
