ST. PAUL, Minn.—Searching for MNsure on the internet can yield misleading results. If you search for MNsure, you may see ads and websites that appear to be the official MNsure website but are not. Some of these sites collect your contact information and either bombard you with phone calls or try to sell you sub-standard health insurance. Here’s how to be sure you’re working with MNsure and purchasing comprehensive health care coverage:

  1. Check the website URL: make sure you’re clicking on when using a search engine or simply type into your address bar.
  2. Be sure you’re buying comprehensive coverage: All plans sold on are Affordable Care Act-compliant, meaning they include /shop-compare/about-plans/esb/index.jspessential health benefits and /shop-compare/about-plans/consumer-protections/index.jspconsumer protections. MNsure does not sell short-term limited duration health plans (STLDs) or association health plans (AHPs).
  3. Confirm you are getting the financial help you are eligible for: is the ONLY place for Minnesotans to access all the /financial-help/index.jspfinancial benefits that can make your health insurance more affordable.
  4. Protect your private information: MNsure will never call you and ask you for your Social Security number, credit card or bank account number.
