DULUTH - Health insurance plans may now be available for purchase through the internet, if state legislators agree with a new proposed bill.
Local organizations and elected officials met Saturday morning to talk about Minnesota’s new Health Care Exchange bill.
This will allow people to choose their health insurance plans over the internet.
At the meeting, officials informed the community about the changes this bill could make, and what might be at stake.
“It’s a very pressing issue where we want to bring awareness to the general public, and have their input. And have our local legislators hear how this bill can put people at the center of insurance as opposed to insurance agencies,” said Noah Hobbes, a Take Action Minnesota member.
Legislators will meet at the end of next month to determine whether the bill will be passed or not.
