Healthcare Enrollment Begins in MN – And There Are Folks Available to Help Out
DULUTH, Minn. —
Starting today, Minnesotans can enroll in healthcare coverage through the open enrollment process.
Minnesota is one of only 12 states with a state health insurance exchange.
The process can be a little complicated, but there are some agencies around the area that can help.
Generations Healthcare Initiative is one of those resources, with folks called “navigators” on board to help people through the enrollment process.
Navigators are trained to know what kinds of income to count and how families or households are counted by MNsure.
“We do have some additional resources to make sure that we can follow up and get that application to go through successfully,” said Program Director Megan Halena.
Halena says Generations Healthcare Initiative is still booking appointments for people hoping to enroll, but they are expecting it to be busy for them all the way through the new year.
“We know that people like to procrastinate, but we also see people being proactive too,” she said. “So that’s why we are busy already. And we expect to be busy through all ten weeks.”
Open enrollment runs through January 14.
