ST. PAUL, Minn.—MNsure is reminding all Minnesotans, regardless of insurance status, to compare plans before the December 22 open enrollment deadline. Individuals who currently have health insurance elsewhere, are uninsured, or are already enrolled through MNsure are encouraged to see if they can save money. With new plan options available in every county in Minnesota, MNsure recommends using the plan comparison tool to view plans side by side and explore details about premiums, deductibles, out-of-pocket costs and more. Minnesotans who sign up by the deadline will have coverage beginning on January 1, 2021.
“This year, nearly all counties in Minnesota have three or more health insurance companies offering plans on MNsure," said Nate Clark, MNsure CEO. "It's important to compare these new options so you can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have the health insurance plan that best meets your family's health care needs and budget. Come to MNsure.org, compare plans, and see if you can save some money."
