MNsure See Jump In Enrollment 27 Mar 14

Minnesota’s health insurance exchange is reporting a jump in enrollments as Monday’s open enrollment deadline approaches. MNsure officials say total enrollment has now topped 145,000. The new numbers include nearly 41,000 enrollments in private insurance plans and over 104,000 for the public Medicaid and MinnesotaCare plans. People who fail to enroll by the 11:59pm Monday deadline face federal tax penalties. Consumers who can show they’ve made a good faith effort to enroll by then but can’t complete the process will get reprieves.
