Before enrolling in MNsure, Roberta and her husband Ken went without health insurance for nearly six years.
"Our premiums were rising so much as to be unaffordable, especially since I had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes."
Their situation was made more complicated by the fact that they are both freelance artists and their income can vary from month to month, year to year. Using the assistance and expertise of a MNsure navigator, they enrolled in a plan that fit their needs.
"I am getting the maintenance care I need to combat my condition and Ken is getting his long-overdue checkups. I feel more at ease these days knowing we have competent, caring health care providers guiding us to better health."
