Buying health insurance on your own? Sign up through Jan. 31, 2017

Are you one of the 1 in 20 Minnesotans who buys health their own health insurance? Sign up continues through Jan. 31, 2017 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, Medica, HealthPartners and Blue Plus all have options on MNsure. You may also buy directly from HealthPartners and Blue Plus. 

The deadline is Jan. 15 for buying health insurance that begins Feb. 1, 2017.
