Today, MNsure announced new TV and radio ads that tell the stories of Minnesotans who have used MNsure to find better, more affordable health care coverage. The ads highlight the affordability of MNsure plans and underscore the fact that MNsure offers the lowest premium rates in the country, with additional financial help available through tax credits. The ads are aimed at encouraging more Minnesotans to enroll in affordable, quality health coverage before the March 31 deadline. Nearly 95,000 Minnesotans have already selected health insurance through MNsure.

About the Ads
The ads are a break from the past use of spokes-legends Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox to offer a more personal and direct take on what the state health insurance exchange and related provisions in the Affordable Care Act have meant for Minnesotans. The new spots are online now on the MNsure YouTube channel.
The ad campaign runs from February 18 through March 24, and will appear on more than 60 television stations in communities across the state. Leitz says the advertisements demonstrate the biggest benefits and the true value to consumers of health care reform.
