Federal Health Care
Friday is the one-month anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, widely known as “Obamacare.” The rollout of the federal health care website has been fraught with problems. And while Minnesota’s health care website MNsure isn’t glitch free, it’s running much smoother than HealthCare.gov. Minnesota’s one of 16 states and the District of Columbia that set up their own health care exchanges.
Minnesota has the lowest average premiums nationwide on three health insurance plans that will be sold under the federal health care overhaul. The Obama administration is releasing information Wednesday on premiums and plans in 36 U.S. states where the federal government is managing the overhaul.
