Online Health Insurance Exchange
Minnesota’s legislative auditor says he plans to conduct a comprehensive review of the troubled launch of Minnesota’s health insurance exchange. Jim Nobles told a MNsure oversight panel on Wednesday that his review will look at problems that plagued the exchange website in its early days.
The board of directors of MNsure, the state’s new health insurance marketplace, will be getting updates Wednesday as a Saturday deadline approaches for coverage that takes effect April 1st.
The 14 states that are running their own health insurance marketplaces are supposed to pay for themselves starting next year, but there could be trouble ahead. The federal government covered start-up costs until the exchanges could get off the ground.
