The Sandia Health Partner Network (HPN) is a network of hospitals and physicians, customized for the Sandia population, dedicated to improving clinical care and reducing costs for Sandians.

Sandia selected the Lovelace Health System as the hospital system for our Sandia HPN. As Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) is the current claims administrator that provides access to the Lovelace Health System, effective January 1, 2012, all employees and PreMedicare retirees enrolled in Sandia Total Health administered by BCBSNM will have access to the Lovelace hospitals along with the physician group ABQ Health Partners, and an additional 250+ independent community physicians.

Sandia Total Health BCBSNM members who use Sandia HPN providers will see higher benefits through lowered out-of-pocket costs. The Sandia Total Health plan design will essentially remain the same; however, premiums are lower for employees who enroll in Sandia Total Health BCBSNM, and the deductible, coinsurance, and out-of-pocket maximums will be reduced for participants who access Sandia HPN providers.

Some of the initiatives ABQ Health Partners committed to implementing for Sandia include:
