What is MnSure?

MNsure is not an insurance company. MNsure is Minnesota's health insurance marketplace where individuals, families and small businesses can shop, compare and choose health insurance coverage that meets their needs.MNsure is the only place you can apply for financial help to lower the cost of your monthly insurance premium and out-of-pocket costs. Most Minnesotans who enroll through MNsure qualify for financial help. Also available to those who qualify are low-cost and free health insurance options provided through government-sponsored health insurance programs Medical Assistance and MinnesotaCare. If you qualify for and enroll in one of these programs, your health coverage is managed through the Department of Human Services.

Qualifying Life Events for Special enrollment periods

Loss of Qualifying Health Coverage

 

  • You may qualify for a special enrollment period if you or someone in your household lost qualifying health insurance in the past 60 days OR expect to lose coverage in the next 60 days. For example, when Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare coverage ends or employer-sponsored coverage ends because a job is ending. This includes those who want an alternative to COBRA continuation coverage.
  • Voluntary loss of coverage because premiums were not paid on time, including COBRA premiums, does not qualify you for a special enrollment period.

Change in Eligibilty for Coverage through MNsure

 

  • Gain of citizenship, U.S. national or lawfully present status or a change in incarceration status that makes you newly eligible for a qualified health plan.
  • For MNsure enrollees, a change in circumstances that makes you newly eligible or ineligible for advanced premium tax credits or cost-sharing reductions.
  • Changes in the terms of your employer-sponsored coverage that make it no longer affordable to you or no longer meet minimum value requirements.

Change in Residence

 

  • Making a permanent move to a new county or zip code that provides new qualified health plan options can qualify you for a special enrollment period.  To qualify, you must have had qualified health plan coverage for at least one day during the 60 days before your move, unless you are moving to Minnesota from a foreign country or U.S. territory.
  • Making a temporary move or a move for purposes of receiving medical treatment does not qualify you for a special enrollment period.
