SANTA FE – Another of the Arizona behavioral health companies brought in three years ago after the Martinez administration ousted local providers says it will leave New Mexico.
Valle del Sol gave notice to state officials in a letter dated Wednesday that it is terminating its agreements and wants to pull out as soon as possible.
It will be the fourth of five Arizona companies to leave.
The firms provided services to the mentally ill and addicted after Gov. Susana Martinez abruptly shut down Medicaid funding to 15 New Mexico nonprofits, accusing them of overbilling and mismanagement and referring them to the attorney general for possible fraud.
