Audit Finds MNsure Midhandled Marketing Money
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota's legislative auditor says the state's health insurance exchange mishandled over $925,000 in marketing work.
A report released Tuesday by Legislative Auditor James Nobles says MNsure did not properly authorize the additional marketing work or amend its contract with its vendor until after the contractor completed the work.
The report also says MNsure lacked adequate internal controls over its collections of premiums from health insurance applicants.
MNsure Executive Director Scott Leitz says in a response that his staff has resolved or is in the process of resolving all the problems the review identified. He says he's pleased the report found no fraud or abuse at MNsure.
The audit did not examine MNsure's operational performance. The legislative auditor plans to release another report next month and an overall evaluation in February.
