Welcome to the
New Mexico Health Policy Commission

The NM Health Policy Commission (HPC) is a state agency that was established by statute in 1991 to provide independent research, guidance, and recommendations on health policy issues that impact the planning of health care and health systems for New Mexico.

Our objectives include: contributing to and advancing best practices; collaborating with other state and health care agencies; promoting the agency’s role as a researcher and catalyst; and enhancing the HPC’s databases to serve as a source of planning for healthcare and health systems.
