If you are currently enrolled in Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare, we will move you to MNsure as part of your renewal process. When it is time for you to renew your coverage, we will send you a letter with instructions about what to do.
Please note that your renewal date may be earlier or later than it has been in the past. We may have changed your renewal date to make sure your renewal process on MNsure is quick and easy.
Be sure that your worker has your current address so that you get all of the information we will be sending. Also, continue to report any other changes within 10 days as you would usually do.
