Statement Regarding the Veto of House Bill 139


Santa Fe, N.M. –

 “I’ve heard from many of my constituents about the importance of receiving health insurance information as quickly and conveniently as possible,” said bill sponsor Joanne Ferrary (D-Las Cruces). “House Bill 139 would have made changes requiring health care insurance cards be digitally formatted so that patient information is shared more accurately and conveniently.  It would have saved insurance companies and providers time and money, as well as reduced patient frustration. It is very disheartening to be receiving this veto today.”
