The basics about creating an account, applying for, and enrolling in health coverage through MNsure.
Find Free Local Help

Gather information you may need about the members of your household, such as Social Security numbers, income, and any health insurance available.
Create an Account
Enter some basic information to verify your identity and select a user name and password so you can log in to MNsure. You will use this same account each time you renew or change your coverage. Use these step-by-step instructions to create your account.
Enroll in a Plan
Enrollment instructions are based on if you qualify for a private health plan, Medical Assistance (MA) or MinnesotaCare. If you are enrolling in a private plan, you can pick your plan online. If you are enrolling in either MA or MinnesotaCare, you will receive information from the Minnesota Department of Human Services. See our guide on how to enroll.
Pay Your Premium
If you have a private plan, your insurance company will send you an invoice. If you have MinnesotaCare, the Minnesota Department of Human Services will bill you monthly. In either case, you must pay your first month premium for coverage to start.
Medical Assistance enrollees do not pay monthly premiums.
If you need help at anytime during the application or enrollment process, you can call our Contact Center.
