|Integrated Medicaid Enrollment Program (IMEP)|
The Integrated Medicaid Enrollment Program (IMEP) is collaboration between New Mexico Primary Care Association (NMPCA) and the New Mexico Human Services, Medical Assistance Division.

NMPCA provides technical assistance to members through various means:
Overall the IMEP program as a result of these partnerships has enrolled approximately 80,000 uninsured New Mexicans in the last four years. This is a great accomplishment taking into account this frees up ISD workers thus saving time, money and resources for the State of New Mexico, in addition to providing a much needed statewide service.
