ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota's health insurance exchange is looking for a permanent leader.

MNsure opened applications this week for its executive director position. The opening was prompted by CEO Scott Leitz's departure in May.

The next chief executive will be the third in just two years at the beleaguered insurance exchange. MNsure's board plans to review applicants through the summer and select a new executive director in mid-September.

It's unclear if the current interim CEO will apply. Allison O'Toole stepped up to take Leitz's position until a permanent replacement is named.

The position pays up to $140,000 a year. MNsure is also looking for a chief financial officer.
