As it stated in ST. PAUL — This week’s impending deadline for Minnesotans to buy health insurance on the individual market just got a little looser.
Ordinarily Minnesotans can buy health insurance either through MNsure.org or directly from an insurance provider.
The February special enrollment period is slightly more limited than the regular open enrollment period which ends Jan. 31.
The open enrollment period for 2017 health insurance had been scheduled to run through Tuesday, Jan. 31.
Some Minnesotans will have even more time to buy insurance.
Dayton seeks health insurance purchase extension
The state-run MNsure health insurance sales site is prepared for a big increase in enrollment as the deadline nears, Dayton said.
Dayton said this week that if he and legislators approve premium relief this week, “it should make a big difference” in how many Minnesotans buy insurance.
State leaders said they think that once premium relief passes, many of those people will buy insurance.
The governor and a key health care senator have asked the Trump administration to give Minnesotans more time.
The governor sent a letter to acting secretary Norris Cochran of the federal Health and Human Services Department seeking an extension until Feb. 28.
