According to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), 423,000 Minnesota residents are uninsured (9% of the state’s population) and 90% of those are eligible for tax credits to supplement their insurance costs in the Affordable Care Act-enabled marketplace.

The HHS also reported that the average cost for the bronze plan in Minnesota, the lowest-cost option, is $144 /mo. before any tax credits. This is well below the national average for a bronze plan which is $249 a month and one of the lowest in the country.

Minnesota has opted to let the federal government and the HHS run their health care marketplace. Residents can enroll at the official website or they can call 1-800-318-2596, available 24/7. As a basis for comparison, we encourage you to get quotes direct from other insurance companies to view a better range of plans and to get assistance with dental and vision plans.
