MNsure open enrollment open through Dec. 23


December 13, 2019

With the end of MNsure's open enrollment period just under two weeks away, MNsure is reminding private health plan enrollees that there is still time to renew or change their coverage for 2020. Additionally, those who are seeking coverage for 2020 and have not yet submitted an application through MNsure can do so through December 23, 2019.

"We strongly encourage all Minnesotans to come back to and compare plans to ensure they are getting the best deal and the best coverage for their family," said Nate Clark, MNsure CEO. "Financial assistance to lower premium costs is available, and the majority of Minnesotans qualify."

MNsure's open enrollment period runs through December 23, 2019, eight days longer than the federal open enrollment period.

Those enrolled in 2019 coverage who want to switch their coverage in 2020 can do so any time during open enrollment, which runs through Dec. 23. Current enrollees do not have to fill out a new application to change their coverage for 2020 but can do so by accessing their enrollment dashboard by signing into their MNsure account.

After creating an account and submitting an application, Minnesotans will receive their household's eligibility determination. If they are eligible for private coverage, they can proceed to their enrollment dashboard and enroll online.

Individuals earning up to $49,960 a year, or a family of four earning up to $103,000 a year, could qualify for federal tax credits. Additional income guidelines are available on the MNsure website. MNsure's customer service guide is located here. More information can be found at
