Public Health Care Programs


COVID-19 Announcements for Public Health Programs


If your income has changed due to COVID-19 or other reasons, your eligibility for Minnesota Health Care Programs could change too. If you have an open case with us, please reach out to us promptly to report any changes so we can make updates needed and ensure you get the coverage you are eligible for.


If you do not have a Minnesota Health Care Programs case with us now but you have lost or will lose your health coverage, you may qualify for a special enrollment period (SEP). Click here to learn more about SEP from MNsure.


Need help applying? MNsure has a statewide network of expert assisters who can help you apply and enroll. The assister you choose can be a navigator or a broker. Brokers and navigators continue to be available to provide free over-the-phone help during the current public health emergency. Click here to find an assister.


All four medical insurance companies that sell private health insurance plans on MNsure are waiving co-pays, co-insurance and deductibles related to Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) diagnostic testing.
