MNsure Lands $41 Million Federal Government Grant

ST. PAUL (AP) — Minnesota’s health insurance exchange has received a $41 million federal government grant to continue the exchange’s rollout.

Officials of the exchange, known as MNsure, announced the Health and Human Services grant on Thursday. MNsure had applied for $44 million.

MNsure.org is the online marketplace where Minnesotans shop for health insurance coverage. The agency reported last week that more than 3,700 people have signed up so far.

The federal grant will be used for general operations at MNsure, along with IT work, technology costs including security training, consumer satisfaction surveys and other costs.

MNsure enrollment began Oct. 1 and is scheduled to run through next March. Insurance purchased before mid-December will take effect on Jan. 1.
