Changing Your Application

If you didn’t apply for financial help when you enrolled in 2016 but want to apply for financial help in 2017, you must call our Contact Center at 1-855-366-7873 or 651-539-2099 to apply. Do not create a new MNsure account.

The Application Is for Your Household

In general, your household includes people who are related to you and either live with you or will be included on your federal tax return. (Do not include a roommate if they are not on your tax return.)

If you are applying for financial help ("application WITH financial help"), you need to include all members of your household to get the correct financial assistance.

If you are not applying for financial help ("application WITHOUT financial help"), include your family members who you want to be covered with you on your private plan.

Only enter data into the required fields (those marked with *).

Reporting Your Income

In general, you should enter any type of income that you report on your federal tax return. The value of assets are not counted as income and are not used to determine whether you qualify for financial help.

MNsure cannot provide tax advice or assistance, please consult a tax professional for help with any tax questions.
