Over the last six months, there has been a great deal of uncertainty about health care. Between the drama in Washington, D.C. around attempts at replacing the Affordable Care Act and actions at the state level, it can sometimes be hard to process all the news about what could potentially impact Minnesotans health insurance options.
The short answer is that right now there are no major changes. Consumers should know that their coverage for the remainder of 2017 is secure and MNsure will continue to be open for business.
This comes despite some news coverage in the last couple of months speculating about MNsure’s future. But now that the Minnesota Legislature concluded its work, we can assure you that MNsure will continue to be here to serve you. That includes the full range of MNsure online shopping and enrollment services at www.mnsure.org, our Contact Center and our in-person assisters.
At this early stage, we don’t know yet which health insurance companies will choose to sell their products through MNsure next year, or how much those companies will choose to charge. That is something decided by health insurance companies and the Minnesota Department of Commerce. We’ll pass that information along just as soon as it is released later this year.
But again, MNsure will continue to be here for you. For the latest updates on the upcoming open enrollment period, please monitor MNsure communications over the coming months.
