More than 8,000 low-income Minnesotans received erroneous notices that their health coverage would be temporarily canceled if they don’t pay up. A July 17 notice warned MinnesotaCare subscribers that they faced a four-month coverage lockout if they failed to renew their policy through the state’s new health insurance exchange by month’s end.
Target Corp. says it will no longer be offering health care coverage for its part-time workers. The discounter is citing new options now available through health care exchanges under the Affordable Care Act.
Health insurance companies can no longer deny or limit coverage for individuals with pre-existing health conditions.
Several health coverage and care options are now available for individuals and families in lower income brackets.
