Statement on President Trump’s CSR announcement

“The Administration has been threatening this since it took office. Most insurers and regulators figured it was going to happen and have done what we can to plan for it this year.

Locally, the damage is different than the rest of the country. But it creates problems in the future. Here, it means legislators don’t really know how much money in the future will be available to fund MinnesotaCare. And it means another broken federal promise to people to who buy their own insurance.

Bottom line, in the future people most in need of help are going to be hurt.”

—Jim Schowalter, President, Minnesota Council of Health Plans
