MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — At least one Minnesota family is eagerly waiting for Oct. 1, so they can begin shopping for new health care coverage on Minnesota’s new health care exchange: MNsure.
Brad and Heidi Stokes pay a staggering amount each year to keep their family covered.
“Our premiums for myself, wife and son are about $1,100 a month,” said Brad Stokes .
On top of that, the couple pays the first $6,500 of health care a year, which they always use.
“That whatever $1,100 a month times twelve, plus the $6,500, that’s up towards $20,000 a year,” Brad said.
