Frequently Asked Questions about the American Rescue Plan

The American Rescue Plan includes several key health care provisions to the Affordable Care Act that enhance benefits available to Minnesotans only through MNsure. This includes:

  • An increase in the amount of tax credits MNsure enrollees will receive to help them pay for the premiums on their private health insurance.
  • An expansion of tax credits to middle-income Minnesotans whose household income was too high to qualify for financial help.
