ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton has chosen six board members with a range of health care experience to direct a state website that will help the uninsured and others obtain coverage under federal health care changes.

Dayton appointed six board members Monday for MNsure, also known as the health insurance exchange. State officials think about 300,000 uninsured Minnesotans and possibly up to a million more people will buy insurance through the site.

Dayton’s appointees are: Thompson Aderinkomi, founder of a healthcare technology firm; Pete Benner, a former union executive; Brian Beutner, a former UnitedHealth Group executive and a consultant; Kathryn Duevel, a retired doctor and hospital official from Willmar; Tom Forsythe, a General Milles executive; and Phil Norrgard, director of human services for the Fond du Lac Reservation.

State human services commissioner Lucinda Jesson fills the seventh board spot.
