Who Can Enroll?

Any Minnesota resident who is a US citizen, US resident, or lawfully present can purchase health insurance through MNsure. Small businesses with up to 50 employees can use MNsure.

To be eligible to enroll in health coverage through MNsure, you: 

  • Must live in the United States 
  • Must be a US citizen or national (or be lawfully present).
  • Can't be incarcerated
  • If you have Medicare coverage, you're not eligible to use MNsure to buy a health or dental plan. See FAQ about Medicare.

MNsure, like other state health insurance marketplaces, is intended to provide affordable health coverage to those who are unable to get it elsewhere. 

If you get health insurance through your job, you can switch to MNsure and enroll in a private plan offered on the MNsure marketplace, however, this could mean you will not qualify for tax credits and will pay full price for the plan.

American Indians

Special protections and benefits provided to American Indians by the Affordable Care Act.


US citizens and lawfully present immigrants are eligible for coverage through MNsure.

Individuals and Families

Whether you currently buy health insurance on your own, or you are uninsured, you can use MNsure.

Small Business Employers
