Health Care Reform

The Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama in March 2010. One key feature of the ACA law is that affordable health insurance exchanges or marketplaces, like MNsure, could be set up in every state. These marketplaces allow residents to shop and compare health plans, get free in-person enrollment help, find out if they qualify for tax credits or health programs, and enroll in a health plan. See how MNsure has changed the health care landscape in Minnesota.

How MNsure is Working for Minnesotans

MNsure has changed Minnesota's health care landscape for the better. See how tax credits, uncompensated hospital care (debt), and insured rates have changed since MNsure became the state's marketplace under the ACA.

Consumer Protections

You cannot be denied coverage because of a pre-existing condition. This is just one of the consumer protections that all plans must include under the ACA.

Essential Health Benefits

Under the ACA, individual and small group health plans must cover 10 essential health benefits regardless if the plan is purchased inside or outside of MNsure.
