ST. PAUL, MN -MNsure and Cub Foods have joined forces to provide consumer information about the state health insurance marketplace in Cub Foods stores throughout the state, MNsure announced today. Cub Foods shoppers will find MNsure consumer brochures and fact sheets in the Cub pharmacies printed in four languages; Spanish, Hmong, Somali and English.
"This community partnership with Cub Foods allows us to reach Minnesotans in their neighborhoods," said MNsure's Director of Marketing and Communications, Mary Sienko. "As consumers visit pharmacies to find the health care products they need, it makes sense that they would also find information about MNsure, Minnesota's best resource for comprehensive health coverage at the lowest rates in the country."
The MNsure materials include general information about the state health insurance marketplace, including contact information, plan benefits and cost-saving options offered only through MNsure.
Consumers also can find information at MNsure.org and by calling the MNsure Contact Center at 1-855-3MNSURE (1-855-366-7873).
Beginning January 1, 2014, all U.S. citizens and legal residents will be required to have health insurance coverage. For those Minnesotans who are uninsured, underinsured or looking for new coverage choices, MNsure is a one-stop health insurance marketplace where individuals, families and small businesses will be able to get quality health coverage at the lowest rates in the country. MNsure will empower more than 1 million Minnesotans to compare, choose and get help finding health care coverage. It will facilitate enrollment in public and private health insurance, determine eligibility for premium tax credits and allow Minnesotans to shop and compare between health care coverage options.
Open enrollment through MNsure began October 1, 2013, and runs through March 31, 2014. For more information about MNsure, how it will benefit Minnesota consumers and businesses and how to provide input visit mnsure.org.
