Report: NM ranks worst for employer health plans

AP/Yahoo! Finance, October 14, 2008

Only half of New Mexico residents under 65 years old are covered by health insurance through their employers, according to an Economic Policy Institute report. The 50.7% figure is the lowest percentage of any state, and is much lower than national figures. New Mexico ranked second from the bottom in the percentage of children insured by an employer-sponsored health plan. Only Mississippi ranked worse.
