Keep Minnesota healthy

Every Minnesotan should have health insurance. And having health insurance should mean you get affordable access to preventive care, doctors and emergency rooms. But too often health insurance is too expensive for Minnesotans. Today, low-income, working Minnesotans are nearly four times more likely to be uninsured compared to high-income families.

For 27 years, MinnesotaCare has been a low-cost option for many individuals and families who don’t get insurance through work and cannot afford private or commercial health insurance. For no more than $80 per month and affordable copays, Minnesotans earning less than $24,280 per year, or $50,200 for a family of four, can have peace of mind with good, basic health insurance.

Preserve MinnesotaCare

Today, nearly 100,000 Minnesotans are enrolled in MinnesotaCare. These working individuals and families have affordable health insurance that covers doctor visits, prescription drugs and other health care services.

To keep MinnesotaCare available, our Legislature needs to continue the current small tax on hospitals and health care providers. MinnesotaCare is funded by a 2 percent tax on health care services, including dentist, chiropractor, physician visits and inpatient hospital care. However, MinnesotaCare’s funding is set to expire on Dec. 31, 2019.

If the Legislature fails to act, the state will lose its long-standing, dedicated funding source for health care coverage that comes from the 2 percent tax.
