ST. PAUL, Minn. — MNsure is pleased to report that 132,789 Minnesotans signed up for 2024 health insurance through Minnesota’s official health insurance marketplace between November 1 and December 15, 2023.

“Over 132,000 Minnesotans will welcome the new year with the peace of mind and security of a full year of high-quality, comprehensive coverage through MNsure,” said MNsure CEO Libby Caulum.

This incredible start to MNsure’s annual enrollment period sets a new early enrollment record for the marketplace. Private health plan sign-ups have increased by 11% compared to the same time last year. With enhanced federal tax credits available only through MNsure, eligible families will save $6,750 in 2024, on average, and spend 5% less on private health plan premiums than they did this year.

“2023 marked the ten-year anniversary since MNsure was created by the Minnesota Legislature,” added Caulum. “As we wrap up the year, it is exciting to see how far Minnesota has come and recognize the incredible progress our state has made in the last ten years: our uninsured rate has been cut in half and more Minnesotans than ever before have access to health care and financial protection from unexpected injury or illness.”

Minnesotans who missed the December 15 deadline still have an opportunity to enroll in medical and dental coverage, but they must act now. MNsure encourages Minnesotans to sign up well before January 15, 2024 – the final deadline and last day of MNsure’s open enrollment.
