There are three months to go before MNsure goes online in Minnesota in the run-up to open enrollment for universal healthcare.
Open enrollment for MNsure begins Oct. 1, with coverage starting on Jan. 1, 2014, and if the folks behind all of the magic and fanfare are to be believed it should be a snap to assess your family’s needs and buy your coverage online, should you find yourself without health insurance for whatever reason.
April Todd-Malmlove, the executive director of Minnesota’s new online health insurance marketplace, has a suggestion to help make the process go as smoothly as any online retail experience.
“The first place I would direct the public is to the video. It is about three minutes. It starts out by explaining what MNsure is,” Todd-Malmlove said. “There is also a ‘frequently asked questions’ link where we post a lot of questions that have been asked of us about the program and then list detailed responses.
