MinnesotaCare

MinnesotaCare

MinnesotaCare is a health coverage program in the U.S. state of Minnesota for low-income individuals and families who do not have access to employee-sponsored health insurance and do not qualify for Medical Assistance (MA). It is administered by the Minnesota Department of Human Services. Enrollees pay a monthly fee based on income and family size, among other factors. According to the Minnesota House of Representatives, as of June 2018, 88,305 individuals were enrolled in the MinnesotaCare program.
MinnesotaCare coverage includes "doctor visits, hospitalization, prescriptions, eye exams, eye glasses, dental care" and other services. Services are provided through prepaid health plans, who negotiate reimbursement rates with health care providers. In fiscal year 2017, the MinnesotaCare program paid $397.2 million for health care services provided to enrollees. Eighty-seven percent of the cost was paid for by the federal government, nine percent by premiums paid by enrollees and cost sharing, just under three percent by the state, and the remainder by the Federal Share Under Waiver.
