This year, Minnesota’s open enrollment will run from November 1 until January 15, 2022, with two important deadlines:

  • Minnesotans must enroll by December 15, 2021, to get coverage beginning January 1, 2022.
  • Minnesotans have until January 15, 2022, the last day of open enrollment, to enroll in coverage beginning February 1, 2022.
