Local Leaders Hold Round Table to Discuss Healthcare
DULUTH, Minn.- Local leaders discussed healthcare at the MNsure round table event at Generations Health Care Initiatives in Duluth, Friday.
Leaders like MNsure CEO Allison O’Toole, and area representative Jennifer Schultz attended an in-depth discussion on the current state of MNsure and the affordable care act, and what the future of Minnesota healthcare may look like, with legislative changes. One change that could possibly occur on the state level is for healthcare to move to a federal exchange instead of MNsure.
“With a move to the federal exchange to the state level, it would have the most impact on mixed households, which means families that have both people on public programs and commercial programs, which is a significant number of people,” said Megan Halena, the Program Director of Generations.
The round table also discussed the last open enrollment of MNsure that ended recently.
