Special Enrollment Period for 2016 Blue Cross, some HealthPartners enrollees

Are you one of the more than 100,000 Minnesotans who bought Blue Cross Blue Shield or HealthParnters insurance health their own in 2016? Was your policy not renewed in 2017? You still have time to sign up for health for health insurance both on MNsure and directly from health insurers.

Check on MNsure to see if you can get help paying your premium each month. If you qualify, you can get that help only if you sign up through MNsure.  If you didn't get help in previous years, be sure to check again this year. The 2017 premium increases mean more people can get help than ever before.  

UCare, HealthPartners, Medica and Blue Plus all have options on MNsure. You may also buy directly from HealthPartners and Blue Plus.  The deadline is March 1.
