2018 Premium Lookup

Information You'll Need

  • The ZIP code and county where you lived for each month of the year you had coverage in a private health plan (also known as a qualified health plan or QHP). If you moved from one county to another during 2018, you need to look for the second lowest cost silver plan (SLCSP) premium in each county you lived in for the months you were there.
  • The birth date of each member of your coverage family. Your coverage family includes everyone in your family who was enrolled in a private health plan through MNsure, but excludes those family members who had access to other minimum essential coverage during the tax year. Individuals who have access to other minimum essential coverage are not eligible for the premium tax credit. The number of people in your coverage family may have changed from month to month. If any member of your family had access to or was enrolled in other minimum essential coverage for any month, do not include that person in your coverage family when looking up the SLCSP premium for that month. For more information on minimum essential coverage and who can take the premium tax credit see IRS instructions for Form 8962 (PDF)
  • The date your health care coverage began. This is your policy start date and is listed on your Form 1095-A in Part I, box 10.

How to Lookup 2018 Premiums

1. Open MNsure's plan comparison tool -- on the first page, click the Continue button.

2.  Under “Which Coverage Year”, select 2018 to find your SLCSP available in 2018.

3. After selecting 2018, a date picker will appear on the right side. Enter the Date when your coverage began or if you are looking up SLCSP for a month your family experienced a change, then select the month you experienced the change.

4. Under “Where do you live”, enter the Zip Code of your residential address. 

5. Under the “Who is in your household and do they need coverage?” Enter the Date of Birth for each person in your household covered by the plan. In most cases, you will enter the date of birth of each person listed on your Form 1095-A. Do not enter members of your coverage family who had access to other minimum essential coverage.
