Recently lost your employer-sponsored insurance?

  • If you have recently lost or will lose insurance through your employer, you may qualify for a special enrollment period to enroll in a plan through MNsure. This special enrollment period is available year-round to qualifying individuals. To enroll, you must contact MNsure and pick a plan within 60 days of losing employer coverage. 
  • To avoid a gap in coverage, you can contact MNsure up to 60 days in advance of your employer’s plan ending to begin the enrollment process.

MNsure offers comprehensive coverage.

  • All plans on MNsure cover comprehensive benefits like doctor’s visits, hospitalizations, prescriptions, mental health services and more. 
  • COVID-19 coverage for MNsure enrollees: Federal law requires all private health insurance plans sold through MNsure to waive cost-sharing for the COVID-19 vaccine and COVID-19 testing and cover at home COVID-19 diagnostic tests authorized, cleared, or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Many plans are also temporarily waiving cost-sharing for in-network COVID hospitalization. Contact your insurance company directly for details about these benefits and what is available to you.
