ALBUQUERQUE – August 21, 2019 – True Health Diagnostics, LLC, a Texas-based company, along with six of its affiliate companies, filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Delaware on July 30th. True Health Diagnostics, LLC has NO association nor affiliation with True Health New Mexico, a New Mexico-based group health insurance provider. The Texas-based company’s bankruptcy filing and letters to patients and providers is causing confusion in New Mexico. New Mexico patients who have had diagnostic testing with True Health Diagnostics, LLC and referring physicians have been sent a letter sent by the Texas-based company True Health Diagnostics, LLC alerting them of their rights because of the bankruptcy. Those letters, which are required in a bankruptcy proceeding, have led to a flurry of concerned calls and emails to True Health New Mexico.

“True Health New Mexico is financially strong and on track for a year of growth. It is unfortunate that the difficulties of a very different, Texas-company with a similar name has led to some confusion here in New Mexico,” said Dr. Mark Epstein, True Health New Mexico Plan President. “Our commitment to helping patients maintain their health and continuing to find innovative ways to both manage health care costs and optimize well-being has never been stronger. People need to know True Health Diagnostics’ actions have nothing to do with our company.”
