The Minnesota Department of Health is reporting that the state’s uninsured rate in 2021 fell to four percent–the lowest level ever measured.

“It’s the result of a lot of work that’s happened in the state to actually reduce insurance premium rates and make it possible for more folks to come to the exchange and to get enrolled.”

Despite the good news, MNsure CEO Nate Clark warns that without congressional action to extend the benefits, about 70,000 Minnesotans who currently access premium tax credits through the marketplace will see higher out-of-pocket costs when the new plan year starts in January 2023.
