Tuesday Talk: What are your thoughts on MNsure?
To borrow a medical metaphor, Obamacare is a resilient patient, surviving a Supreme Court challenge and various gubernatorial and legislative attempts to infect and kill it. It’s still alive and about to get stronger in Minnesota. Starting in October, Minnesotans can purchase health insurance through MNsure, our state health insurance exchange. Actual coverage for these programs takes effect January 1. MNsure is expected to have a user-friendly website allowing patients to compare price and coverage, and let you know the monetary credits for which you qualify.
There’s still a lot of confusion and misinformation around Obamacare and the exchange. That’s why Minnesota 2020 is excited to have an exchange expert joining us this morning to straighten it all out. Between 8:30 and 9:45 am, Phillip Cryan, former member of the health insurance exchange taskforce and SEIU Healthcare organizing director, joins Tuesday Talk to answer your questions about moving Minnesota to near universal health care.
What are your thoughts on MNsure, our health insurance exchange, and Obamacare generally?
We had a great Q&A this morning! The discussion continues all day. Tell us your thoughts. Phillip will try to check in later to answer any remaining questions.
