FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ST. PAUL, Minn.—MNsure is reminding Minnesotans to report changes to their household information outside of open enrollment to ensure their plan and any financial assistance is up to date and accurate. Job or income changes, marriage, or a new address are common household changes that can affect your health plan eligibility and tax credit amount.
Depending on the change reported, Minnesotans may qualify for a /new-customers/enrollment-deadlines/special-enrollment/index.jspspecial enrollment period (SEP), allowing them to change their plan, while other changes may affect the amount of tax credits they receive or the coverage that is available to them. Minnesotans who do not report their household changes to MNsure are at risk of missing out on available financial assistance or having to repay tax credits during tax time.
MNsure has created a variety of /new-customers/enrollment-deadlines/special-enrollment/about-sep/index.jsphelpful videos to help Minnesotans understand how certain /new-customers/enrollment-deadlines/special-enrollment/sep-le/index.jspqualifying life events can make them eligible for special enrollment. Generally, Minnesotans have up to 60 days following the qualifying life event to enroll in a plan.
Those who qualify for a public health care program (Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare) or are a member of a federally recognized tribe can enroll year-round.

MNsure experienced record-setting sign-ups during its sixth open enrollment period, which ran from November 1, 2018, to January 13, 2019. More information can be found at mnsure.org.
