Sole Community Provider Program
The New Mexico Sole Community Provider (SCP) program was implemented in 1994 and now provides major safety-net funding to New Mexico's rural hospitals and the University of New Mexico Hospital. The funding levels have grown significantly through the years. At the same time, counties have had growing difficulties in paying the state match portion of the program. In addition, recent federal administrative initiatives have threatened the viability of the program, especially for public hospitals. NMHA is exploring options to modernize, protect and enhance SCP.
