Asthma Grids

Many New Mexico providers and patients face the challenge of obtaining asthma medication and equipment for home and school that is both appropriate and optimally reimbursed.  The grids below offered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico, Molina Health Care of New Mexico, Presbyterian Health Plan, and United Healthcare are intended to share information in a central electronic location to ease barriers to appropriate prescribing and filling of asthma medication and equipment.  The grids will be updated every six months and the date will be noted at the bottom of the website page.
