Minnesota set a new enrollment record, with a total of 117,654 enrollments in the individual marketplace during the 2017 open enrollment period and proceeding one-week special enrollment period. Approximately 47 percent of MNsure’s private plan enrollees are new to the exchange for 2017. About 64 percent of MNsure enrollees are receiving tax credits, which averages about $621 per month, or $7,457 per year.
“We are enrolling people at historically high levels,” said MNsure CEO Allison O’Toole. "When more Minnesotans are covered, our state is healthier and our economy is stronger."
Additionally, Minnesota also set a record for public program enrollments during open enrollment with 33,369 Minnesotans newly enrolled in MinnesotaCare and 114,511 newly enrolled in Medical Assistance. See MNsure’s most recent press release for further details.
