ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) – If you haven’t signed up for health insurance through Minnesota’s online health insurance exchange, you have until Wednesday night to do so.

MNsure officials announced last week they were extending the enrollment deadline by a full week. That deadline ends at midnight Wednesday. Insurance packages purchased during this period will be effective beginning March 1.

For those who have last-minute questions before enrolling, the MNsure Contact Center will have extended hours through Wednesday. It will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday. The number is 1-855-366-7873 (1-855-3MNSURE).

Officials say more than 100,000 people have enrolled in private health care coverage.

    Another give away of tax dollars as a Band-Aid fix, next enrollment period will again see double digit increases and companies bailing out of the MNUnsure mess. Then Dayton “I Know Nothing” will use more tax dollars to plug the leak.
