MNsure Bulletin

Word from the CEO:  While our busiest time of year is behind us, it’s important to know that MNsure enrolls Minnesotans year-round. If you’re currently without coverage or your life circumstances change, your eligibility to enroll through MNsure might change, too.  Enrollment in MinnesotaCare and Medical Assistance is open year-round. If you think you or your children might be eligible, please check our income guidelines table.  You can also enroll in MNsure if you experience a qualifying life event. These include such events as a marriage or a permanent move. MNsure can also often serve as a more-affordable alternative to COBRA coverage. A full list of qualifying life events can be found on our website.  If you’re without coverage or know someone who needs it, please explore your options with MNsure!

Allison O’Toole, CEO

Keep Your Account Info Up to Date:

It's important to update your MNsure account if any of your information changes. That could include a new address, changes to your income or changes to your family size. If you are enrolled in a private health plan, you need to report any changes that affect your enrollment or your eligibility for financial help within 30 days of the change.

Why?

  • The amount of financial help you qualify for could go up or down
  • You could qualify to switch plans
  • Your plan might not be available if you have moved to a different area
  • So that notices and forms are mailed to the correct address

How to report changes and life events

Special Enrollment Options for 2017 Coverage:

The 2017 open enrollment period is now closed, but you still may qualify for a special enrollment period this year. Big life events like having a baby, getting married or losing insurance due to a layoff could make you eligible for a special enrollment period. Go to our website for a list of qualifying life events and find out how to apply for a special enrollment period.  If you qualify for Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare, are a member of a federally recognized Indian tribe, or are a small group employer, you can enroll through MNsure at any time of the year.
