MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minneapolis Urban League is hosting a forum on MNsure, the state’s new online marketplace for health insurance.

MNsure’s executive director, April Todd-Malmlov, will be participating in the panel discussion, which runs from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Monday at the Minneapolis Urban League headquarters. It will be hosted by Al McFarlane of Insight News.

The exchange will launch this fall.  It’s a key part of implementing President Barack Obama’s federal health care law. About 1.3 million Minnesotans are expected to get coverage through MNsure, including 300,000 who currently don’t have health insurance.

The website being developed is intended to give consumers the information they need to choose a plan, learn if they qualify for financial assistance and sign up in less than an hour.

Open enrollment begins Oct. 1.
