ALBERT LEA, MN — Work is beginning on Minnesota’s new healthcare exchange, including in our area.
As we told you yesterday, the legislative committee that oversees the development of MNsure held their first meeting.
MNsure is the online marketplace where eligible Minnesotans can shop for health insurance.
While most of the work is happening in the twin cities, locally counties are just as busy getting ready for the October first enrollment date.
“What you are probably seeing is counties scrambling, maybe putting on some additional staff right now to look at some of the increase caseloads that they are going to have,” Freeborn County Director of Human Services Brian Buhmann said.
He adds employees will start a seven week training course for the new program in the middle of August.
