Don't Miss Open Enrollment
The Open Enrollment period is determined every year by MNsure. Outside open enrollment, you may not enroll for coverage unless you have a qualifying life event (such as changes in family size, marriage, and other events). However, if you qualify for Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare, you can enroll year-round.
What plans are offered on MNsure and when can I sign up?
Through MNsure, you can find out if you qualify for one of the following types of plans:
Private plans, (according to your age and location) - during open enrollment, usually November through January.
*If you are eligible for one of these programs, you can enroll through MNsure all year long.
As stated above, qualifying life events may allow individuals to enroll in benefits outside of the Open Enrollment Period. Please contact an enrollment assister for details. To print the income guidelines shown below, click here.
