Buying health insurance on your own? Sign up begins Nov. 1

Are you one of the 1 in 20 Minnesotans who buys health their own health insurance? Sign up begins Nov. 1 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. 

Dec. 15 is the deadline for buying health insurance that begins Jan. 1, 2017.
