Your designated agency administrator can log in to the agency registration account and update the information in the roster. More information about this process can be found in the Agency Registration and Broker Certification Guidebook.
Immediately upon completion of certification or recertification requirements. Read more information about the certification and recertification requirements for brokers.
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.
Yes, MNsure-certified agents/brokers, navigators and certified application counselors are obligated to assist anyone who contacts them. At minimum, assisters are required to refer consumers to other assisters if they are unable to help the consumer with their application and enrollment for health care coverage through MNsure.
Education. Exemptions must be applied for under Healthcare.gov.
Yes, if you have completed the training to gain access to the MNsure Assister Portal. For more information visit the Assister Portal page.
No. Assister Portal access is not required. If you are not using the portal, over-the-shoulder enrollment is preferred. Assisters should not be creating accounts for consumers. Assisters may walk the consumer through the necessary steps to enroll while the consumer enters the information themselves.
Yes. A consumer that applies using the “unassisted” path and enrolls in a QHP through MNsure may qualify for premium tax credits when they file their federal income tax return. All households who enroll in a QHP through MNsure, regardless of whether members of the household received financial assistance, will receive IRS Form 1095-A. When a consumer files a federal tax return, they must use the 1095-A to claim the premium tax credit.
In order for the consumer to receive advanced premium tax credits, the consumer will need to contact MNsure so we can close their case and have them reapply using the “assisted” application. If eligible, the consumer can then receive advanced premium tax credits for the remainder of the plan year.
If your client has forgotten his or her MNsure account user name or password, the information can be recovered by using the "Forgot Your Username" or "Forgot Your Password" link on the MNsure account login page.
If you are unable to unlock the account using the online link you may also call MNsure. It is best to call the Contact Center at 1-855-366-7873 with the client on the phone to complete the process.
