About the Applications

Fill out an application to see if you are eligible to enroll in health coverage through MNsure. Any Minnesota resident who is a U.S. citizen, U.S. resident, or lawfully present can enroll.

  • There are no age restrictions for applicants. Adults who are not applying for themselves may still apply on behalf of their child.
  • Families that include immigrants can apply. You do not have to be a U.S. citizen to qualify for health coverage through MNsure. Minnesota residents who are in the U.S. legally can be eligible. You can apply for your child even if you are not eligible for coverage. Additional information about immigration and public benefits: Does Public Charge Apply to You?
