Coverage options: 

Medical Assistance
Minnesota’s Medicaid program that covers many people with low income, especially children and pregnant women.  There is no monthly premium.  Enrollment is available year round. 
Minnesota Care
Covers Minnesotans with lower incomes who don’t have access to affordable health care coverage.  Low monthly premiums are determined by income and family size.  Enrollment is available year round. 
Qualified Health Plans
Enroll in insurance through the MN Sure Marketplace.  Financial assistance is available depending on your income, household size and the cost of insurance in your area.  Plans must be purchased through MN Sure to qualify.  You can enroll in or renew a QHP during the annual open enrollment in late fall and early winter.  If you experience life changes such as having a baby, getting married, divorced or losing a job with health insurance you can qualify for a special enrollment period outside of open enrollment. 

MN Sure is the only place you can qualify for financial help that can lower your monthly premiums by qualifying for tax credits.  Having Health Insurance keeps you from having to pay a penalty when filing your federal tax return.  Penalties are calculated based on income.
