MNsure announced a special 30-day enrollment period beginning March 23 and ending April 21. This open enrollment period is available for individuals without insurance currently and is available as part of the state’s response to the COVID-19 virus. Eligible Minnesotans include those without insurance currently, as well as anybody who is on COBRA-type plans due to recent loss of employment. You do not have to be sick to qualify. It is also important to remember that an offer of insurance from an employer does not disqualify you from MNsure application or coverage. Minnesota is committed to ensuring our citizens stay healthy and covered during this crisis and anybody eligible for MNsure is encouraged to apply today.
