Under the Affordable Care Act, all Americans will have access to affordable health insurance options, including low-cost and free plans. A new insurance exchange called MNsure is now up and running for Minnesotans without insurance to shop for and select a health plan. Open enrollment for MNsure continues through March 31, 2014 with coverage starting as soon as January 1, 2014.
This week Hennepin County Medical Center and Hennepin County will co-host a free 3-day enrollment event to assist people with the enrollment process on the MNsure website, www.MNsure.org.
No appointment needed. Patients are invited to come browse the MNsure website to find a health plan that fits your budget and meets their needs. With HCMC’s free in-person assistance, it’s even easier for patients to find, compare, and buy health coverage through MNsure.
“Of course our patients can enroll from the comfort of their own homes,” explains Anthony Yanni, revenue cycle project consultant, who has led the MNsure communications project at HCMC, “but we want them to know that we’re here to help if needed. That’s why we’re offering this opportunity to ask questions and provide hands-on assistance with enrollment.”
