The 2016 legislature changed the renewal process for MinnesotaCare enrollees. Instead of all renewals occurring in January, renewals would be staggered throughout the year, with an enrollee’s renewal month based on his or her application date. This change was originally intended to be implemented by July 1, 2017.
Because of the significant IT effort required and the negative impacts associated with trying to phase in staggered renewals, including the income methodology change, this project has been postponed. The postponement will allow DHS and MNsure to pursue other systems changes that will benefit both the Medical Assistance (MA) and MinnesotaCare programs, reduce our compliance risk and improve case management.
The METS Executive Steering Committee, which consists of DHS, MNsure, and county representatives, approves all METS IT development changes. The METS Executive Steering Committee is currently considering projects for 2018.
