Report Incarceration Status Change

If you’re incarcerated (serving a term in prison or jail), you can’t use MNsure to buy a private health insurance plan. But after you’re released, you can. 

Have this information ready when you report this change:

  • If you or a member of your household have been released from incarceration, the date of release
  • If you or a member of your household becomes incarcerated, the date of the incarceration

This change may qualify for a special enrollment period (SEP):

Getting released from serving a term in prison or jail can make you newly eligible for a private health plan during a SEP.

Documentation needed to verify release from incarceration.
