SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Gov. Susana Martinez has named medical care, insurance and business officials to the governing board of New Mexico's state-run health insurance exchange, which must be quickly implemented in the new few months.

The exchange is to serve as a marketplace for the uninsured to buy medical coverage.

Martinez on Thursday announced six appointees to the exchange's board of directors. They join six members named by legislators.

The state superintendent of insurance is on the 13-member board but votes only to break ties. The board meets next week.

Martinez appointed Santa Fe physician J.R. Damron; Las Cruces businesswoman Terriane Everhart; Presbyterian Healthcare Services lawyer Gabriel Parra; Lovelace Health Plan CEO Ben Slocum; and University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center Professor Dr. J. Deane Waldman; and Human Services Secretary Sidonie Squier.
