Anytime up until MNsure closes registration and certification. Typically, registration and certification closes to any new agencies and brokers in the summer to make enhancements to our tools in preparation for reopening the process before open enrollment. MNsure will notify brokers by email and on Broker One Stop when registration and certification closes and when it opens.
All certifications obtained through the registration closure date will expire on the day before the first day of the next open enrollment period. MNsure requirements for recertification and certification must be met before the next open enrollment period and before assisting qualified individuals, employers and employees with eligibility and enrollment determinations.
