Email News Alerts

Almost 11,000 people have bought health insurance policies through the new state MNsure program.

The politically sensitive program is picking up steam after its Oct. 1 launch. More activity is expected as a Dec. 15 deadline nears to have policies in place by Jan. 1.


Minnesotans may buy policies through through the end of March. They also may call (855) 366-7873 to arrange for in-person help to buy insurance.
