REGIONAL- The 2018 open enrollment period is now underway. Minnesotans can log on to the MNsure website (www.mnsure.org) to enroll.

Those who want coverage that begins Jan. 1, 2018, they must enroll by Dec. 20, 2017. Open enrollment runs until Jan. 14, 2018.

MNsure is the one-stop marketplace for health insurance. Financial assistance is available for plans purchased through MNsure if families meet financial guidelines (annual income up to $48,240 for one person, $64,960 for two, and $98,400 for families of four). Families with lower incomes may qualify for MinnesotaCare or Medical Assistance. Households with income above these amounts can still enroll in a private plan through the marketplace, but are not eligible for tax credits. MNSure plans have no exclusions for pre-existing conditions, and you cannot be charged a higher premium because of your medical history.

At MNsure.org, you can compare plans from multiple companies side-by-side and estimate out-of-pocket costs. Current enrollees can check to see if their 2017 plan will be available in 2018. 

To help make enrolling online an easier process, there is an extensive section with guidelines and tips for new enrollees. Minnesotans who need help logging into their account can do so online, by either resetting their user name or resetting their password.

MNsure’s Contact Center has expanded its hours starting Nov. 1:Monday - Friday: 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.­Saturday: 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. You can reach them at 1-855-366-7873.

Free, local enrollment help is available. MNsure has a statewide network of expert assisters who can help Minnesotans apply and enroll in person and over the phone; you can find them online at www.mnsure.org/help.
