Need help with MNsure?

Published 11:07am Thursday, March 20, 2014

A group of people trained on the ins and outs of MNsure will be in Albert Lea next week to offer enrollment assistance to area residents.

The outreach, through Health Access MN, comes as the March 31 deadline to enroll in health insurance coverage approaches, according to a news release.

As part of MNsure’s March to Enroll campaign, trained MNsure navigators will be at the Albert Lea Public Library from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday to answer questions and assist with enrollment.

MNsure is Minnesota’s new health insurance marketplace.

The navigators are trained in Medical Assistance, MinnesotaCare and private plan enrollments.

The release states more than 125,000 people have enrolled for coverage through MNsure, and about 1,000 more people are signing up each day.

People are encouraged to bring Social Security numbers for all household members, information about other health insurance that is offered and details about all types of household income expected in 2014, including pay stubs and W-2 forms.

The release states a single person earning up to $45,960 a year or a family of four earning up to $94,200 a year could qualify for assistance.
