MNsure Grants Reprieve For Late Enrollment Snags

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Officials with Minnesota’s health insurance exchange say consumers who make a good faith effort to enroll for coverage by the 11:59 p.m. March 31st deadline but run into problems and can’t complete the process will get a reprieve.

MNsure chief Scott Leitz compares it to people who are still waiting in line when polls close on election day — they still get to vote. So those who are still “in line” when the enrollment deadline hits will still be able to get coverage and avoid the tax penalty.

People can fill out a form on the MNsure website, but the exchange will accept other documentation, too.

More than 130,000 people had signed as of Friday. MNsure has set a goal of 135,000 and plans to issue updated enrollment figures Tuesday.
