The deadline for January 1 coverage is December 15
In Southeast Minnesota, the benchmark premium through MNsure is declining 19 percent, and those eligible for tax credits can have additional savings. Approximately 70 percent of enrolled households in Southeast Minnesota are receiving tax credits.
“With lower rates in southeastern Minnesota and significant financial assistance available, we are excited by the savings enrollees are seeing in 2019,” said Nate Clark, MNsure CEO. “Our initial deadline is Saturday, December 15, for coverage that begins on January 1, so we encourage everyone to visit MNsure.org to see how much they can save.”
More than 6,500 Southeast Minnesota residents have enrolled in private health coverage through MNsure thus far.
“We encourage everyone to utilize our new plan comparison tool for a quick and easy look into potential savings and available plan options,” said Clark. “There are also MNsure assisters across southeastern Minnesota who can provide free in-person enrollment assistance.”
MNsure is the only place where Minnesotans can save money off their monthly premiums with tax credits. Individuals earning up to $48,560 a year, or a family of four earning up to $100,400 a year could qualify for federal tax credits. Additional income guidelines are available on the MNsure website.
MNsure’s open enrollment period runs until January 13, 2019.
