ST. PAUL, Minn.—Despite federal deadline reminders to enroll by December 15, Minnesotans still have over four weeks to secure coverage in 2018. Open enrollment for Minnesota's state-based health exchange, MNsure, runs until January 14. Minnesotans looking for coverage that starts January 1, 2018, have until next Wednesday, December 20, to enroll in coverage.

MNsure extended its open enrollment deadline to ensure Minnesotans had adequate time to shop, compare and enroll into a plan that best fits their needs.

To accommodate higher call volumes, MNsure has extended /help/contact-us/index.jspContact Center hours in the days leading up to the December 20 deadline:
