Office: 155 State Office Bldg., Saint Paul, Minnesota 55155 September 6, 2013 Statement from Senate Republican Leader David Hann on MNsure Rates
(St. Paul, MN) - State Senate Republican Leader David Hann (R-Eden Prairie) responds to the MNsure health insurance rates released today. MNsure is Minnesota’s new government-organized health insurance exchange that was recently passed into law in 2013. Consumers will be able to purchase insurance starting October 1, and the insurance plans will take effect on January 1, 2014. “These rates are higher than what is currently available on the open market , and even with promises that healthcare reform will bring more affordability, it seems we were sold a bill of goods. MNsure will cost us more – consumers will pay higher premiums and taxpayers will pay higher taxes to fund subsidies. In addition, MNsure limits choices in health insurance coverage for hardworking Minnesota families. It also fails to protect private patient data. Republicans will continue to offer common-sense solutions to reform our health care system to ensure Minnesota remains the gold standard in patient care,” said Senator Hann.
