ST. PAUL — A long-awaited investigation into the state health insurance exchange’s rocky rollout is about to be released. 

The Office of the Legislative Auditor was set to release its wide-ranging audit of MNsure this morning. The new audit is expected to cover any gaps in planning and implementation as well xas whether enrollments have kept pace with projections.

Previous looks into MNsure operations found that the exchange mishandled nearly $1 million in marketing work and had mistakenly placed several people in public health programs when they didn’t qualify.

MNsure concluded its second round of open enrollment Sunday. This latest audit may fuel proposals in the Legislature to alter MNsure governance and give lawmakers more power to control its budget.
