MNsure will not automatically end your private health plan coverage if you are identified as being eligible, or become eligible, for Medicare after you are enrolled in a private plan. However, you can request to end your private plan coverage at any time. Generally, if you are eligible for Medicare, even if you do not enroll in it, then you are not eligible for advanced premium tax credits (APTC) or cost-sharing reduction (CSR). Any APTC or CSR you are receiving will be terminated. Additionally, if you choose to enroll in a private plan through MNsure instead of Medicare and then enroll in Medicare later, you may have to pay a late enrollment penalty.
You will be found ineligible to purchase a private plan (qualified health plan) because you receive Medicare Part A or Part B.
You will see something similar to the following message:
Generally, Medicare beneficiaries are not eligible to purchase insurance through MNsure. However, narrow exceptions do apply. If you're a Medicare beneficiary and are looking for health care coverage through MNsure, you should first contact the Senior Linkage Line at 800-333-2433 to speak with a Medicare specialist.
