Trying to compile a list of Coronavirus information and resources for New Mexicans. If you are aware of additional programs, resources, etc., please leave a comment. I will be researching and screening information prior to adding to the article or approving comments to avoid phishing links and scams.

Still in the information gathering process. I will update frequently over the next few days. For example, I will break up the information into sections over the next few days so it is easier to organize, navigate, and update.

Again, additional suggestions are welcome in the comments below. If there are other services and resources that you need, please let me know. Happy to research.

Coronavirus Testing Sites in New Mexico

New Mexicans can self-screen at “Should I get tested?” by answering a series of questions and the health department will then provide a recommendation on whether to be tested. Additionally, residents can now get COVID-19 test results online at a portal being administered by the department of health department. To get test results, log on, enter your name, date of birth and date of sample collection. Additional sites on the NM Dept of Health website.

All coronavirus testing is free. Keep in mind that no health care providers may charge or bill you for copays or other costs for a COVID-19 test in our state. The New Mexico Superintendent of Insurance issued an emergency rule stopping health insurers from charging co-pays, coinsurance and deductibles. All testing is free.

Optum Urgent Care

Optum New Mexico March 27 is transitioning its three testing locations in the Albuquerque metro area to serve solely as Fever Upper Respiratory Infection (FURI) sites. This change will complement drive-through testing so that if a patient with COVID-19 symptoms requires additional care or a more in-depth medical evaluation, they will be brought into these clinics to receive that care.

As a result of these changes, Optum is no longer seeing any other type of visits at these three testing locations – Journal Center Urgent Care, Rio Rancho, and Tramway.
