If you're unable to prove that you are looking for a job, you might lose your health insurance.

10 states, including Arizona, are already lined up and waiting for federal permission to enact the new requirements. New Mexico is not among them.

About 44 percent of New Mexico's populations, or about 900,000 citizens, are on Medicaid.
