As a husband and father of three children, Mark knows the importance of good health insurance coverage.
Mark has purchased insurance on the open market for years because it was not available through his employer. His plan had little coverage and carried a $12,000 a year deductible, in addition to expensive premiums. While on this plan, Mark's children had small but expensive medical needs that continued to eat away at his family's budget.
Mark checked out MNsure and was able to enroll in a plan that started January 1, 2014.
"This is a game changer for middle class families," said Mark.
Mark did not qualify for a tax credit, but his overall premium did go down and his deductible went from $12,000 to $2,000 per year. Mark's children also now have free preventive dental coverage as part of his new MNsure plan.
"This will save my family thousands of dollars when it comes to medical expenses this year," said Mark.
MNsure offers the lowest premium rates in the country. Additional financial help is available for those who qualify through tax credits. All MNsure plans cover important benefits such as preventive care, doctor visits, hospitalizations, prescriptions, ER care, maternity care and more.
